Life can be difficult for many people – especially those in ill health. So in 2015, Matt will be taking on an ‘extreme’ charity challenge to raise funds and awareness for Pets as Therapy.
Pets as Therapy is a pioneering charity that helps 1000’s of people every week by bringing lovable pets to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools, and more. By giving patients a chance to hold and stroke animals, the charity brings comfort and calm to people’s lives.
In April 2015, Matt will journey on a sled race through one of the world’s most revered landscapes: the Arctic. Using his dog handling skills, he will steer a trusty husky pack through 250km of Arctic land over six days. He must camp, eat and sleep with his pack, ensuring they all reach their destination safely.
We’d like to ask you to sponsor Matt. With your donations, Pets as Therapy can continue to brighten up the lives of those in ill health.
