Bristol DAWG is a non-profit Greyhound and Lurcher rescue charity devoted to saving and re-homing dogs in need. Many are ex-racing greyhounds, suffering terrible welfare conditions, but rescued by DAWG they are given the love and care to recover and find their forever homes.
Greyhounds are incredible companions – Great with children and other animals, they are gentle and placid by nature, full of character, and lazy to the bone!
I’m training to run a Marathon… at night… on my birthday… in the Arctic Circle! I run at night. It’s usually cold, often wet, and always dark. I’m always exhausted. In fact, the conditions are just like those experienced by many racing greyhounds. The only difference is I’m forcing myself to do this! Racing dogs don’t get a choice.
Before I run, my first challenge is to raise just 1 penny for each meter of the Marathon: £421.95.
STOP PRESS: After just 14 days I reached target #1 so I’ve upped it ten-fold: I am now setting a target of 10p for each Marathon meter: £4,219.50!
Adding Gift Aid means charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. Gift Aid makes a huge difference.
I’m running a Marathon in the Arctic Circle for Bristol DAWG because if I force myself to run, more dogs won't have to!
Thank you for your donations.
