A CAMBUSLANG family are on the run for charity.
Zasha Docherty and her three daughters Natasha (14) , Chloe (13) and Meghan (7) will be running the Sainbury’s Sport Relief Mile, starting at Finnieston Key on Sunday, March 21.
Natasha and Chloe both attend Cathkin High while Chloe attends Cathkin Primary, and all the girls have been taking their sponsor sheets into school to raise funds.
And most of the family, who live in Macarthur Wynd, are no strangers to running.
Although Zasha, Natasha and Chloe have ran marathons before, this will be little Meghan’s first ever attempt.
Zasha (34) is looking forward to taking part in the marathon with her girls: “I normally run the Glasgow marathon once a year and I normally do it with my two oldest daughters. My wee one has been dying to do one as she’s always been left out because she’s too young.
“Then this one came up and it’s great since it’s for any age, you can run it or walk it. She’s really excited. Since we’re doing it for charity she’s taken her forms into school to get people sponsor her.
“You can chose to run either one, three or six miles, I thought one mile isn’t enough, and six is too much so we decided to go for two.”
Zasha and Chloe have been training hard for the challenge, going for jogs along Cambuslang in preparation.
They have raised over £100 so far thanks to kind donations from the community.
Zasha added: “A big thanks to everyone who has donated, we’re delighted we have managed to raise such a great amount so early on.
“Hopefully we’ll be able to raise even more!”
The Glasgow Mile allows participants to not only chose the length they wish to undertake, but also if they want to jog or walk the distance.
The event is set against some of the cities most iconic landmarks across the River Clyde and there will be entertainment as well with performances from The Box, as featured in the final of Got to Dance.
