The difference your money makes

Dog walk challenge

Thanks to your support through this challenge, we can continue to fund life-saving research.

We're working hard to reach our goal of 3 in 4 people surviving their cancer by 2034 and every step we take towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated.

Supporters raise money by stepping up to the challenge of walking 60 miles in a month with their four-legged friend. They can split the miles in a way that suits them, but we recommend around 2 miles every day of the month. 

There is not a minimum amount of fundraising that we set for participant, but we recommend you set a reasonable target of raising about £150.

Yes, you can still take part, but be aware not to over-exercise your puppy. The Kennel Club have lots of helpful information, click here

Tips to remember: 

Good rule of thumb is a ratio of 5 minutes of exercise per month of age of your puppy (up to twice a day).

For example, if your puppy is 4 months old, 4x5=20 mins of exercise.  

As they get older, they can have longer periods of exercise.  

It is important to exercise your puppy everyday to strengthen their muscles and bones.   

Try not to exercise your puppy on a full stomach as they can get bloated.  

Unfortunately, medals come at a huge cost to the charity so we will not be sending these out. However, we will send all supporters a downloadable certificate and you can access digital badges to shout about your achievement on social media.
