Beardy’s Woman To Run Marathon In Holland

A nurse from Montreal Lake is headed to Amsterdam next week to join the fight against diabetes.


Margaret Gamble, originally from the Beardy’s/Okemasis First Nation, will compete in a marathon as a member of Team Diabetes Canada.


Gamble says she has seen first-hand the dehabilitating effects of the disease and wants to make a difference.


She says she hasn’t had a lot of time to train, however, so she may scale down the length of her run.


Gamble has raised over $5,000 by herself to enter next week’s event.


She encourages those wanting to help to donate money to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
