Box­ing clever to help beat ovar­ian can­cer

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A three-hour box­er­cise class in Cam­bus­lang raised hun­dreds of pounds for a can­cer charity.

Trans­form Fit­ness hosted the Box 2 Beat Can­cer event which re­sulted in a knock­out re­sult of £500 be­ing raised for Ovar­ian Can­cer Ac­tion.

The class was led by Tracy Chambers at Stu­dio 56 on Hamil­ton Road.

Tracy said:“A woman dies ev­ery two hours from ovar­ian can­cer in the UK, and sadly many of th­ese deaths could be pre­vented if the con­di­tion were iden­ti­fied ear­lier.

“More than a third of women are di­ag­nosed in A&E – when the con­di­tion is al­ready in an ad­vanced stage.”

She added:“We raised more than £500 with dona­tions still com­ing in.”
