Maggie's Forth Valley urges people to support 300,000 Steps Challenge
Falkirk district residents are being asked to lace up their walking and running shoes to fundraise for a cancer support service.
There is just one week to go until the 300,000 Steps Challenge kicks off in aid of Maggie’s centres across the country.
The fundraiser tasks participants with aiming for that grand total throughout March by going on strolls or jogs of their choice.
Maggie’s Forth Valley, based in Larbert, is calling on volunteers to lend their support to ensure everyone with cancer gets the help they need.
