Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am running the Edinburgh BUPA Great Run 10k in July in support of the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) - a very worthy charity which promotes understanding and research into animal welfare in a variety of settings - pet, wild, captive, farm and research animals.
Our Behaviour and Evolution Research Group (BERG) meetings at the University of Stirling are also supported by UFAW which allows PhD students (like myself) and researchers the opportunity to discuss and promote our research. You can find out more about some of UFAW's work at http://www.ufaw.org.uk/highlights.php
I need to raise a minimum of £200 but I'm hoping to exceed that - and I promise to run faster if you help me exceed my target!
"By supporting UFAW you can help make real, practical and lasting advances to animal welfare throughout the world - for companion animals, farm animals, animals used in research, captive wild animals and those living in the wild that are affected by human activities.
Through scientific work that builds our knowledge and understanding of animals’ needs and how best we can meet them, through educational projects, and through the disseminating of information to individuals and organisations around the world - you can help improve the lives of animals.
UFAW is an independent registered charity and receives no funds from universities or government. UFAW relies on donations, member subscriptions and legacies to continue this vital work."
