This September leading animal welfare charity, Battersea, is inviting animal lovers across the UK to pick up their leads and put on their trainers and take part in Walk for Rescue – a virtual walking challenge that dog owners can take on with their canine companion by their side – to raise money for Battersea and help the charity be here for every dog and cat. Battersea’s Walk for Rescue is open to every human and every dog between 17-25 September, and dog owners everywhere can take on their own unique challenge, setting their own distance goal and how they want to achieve it. Whether that’s trekking up Snowdon or making the most of the summer evenings with an extra-long walk in the local park, walking to the shops instead of driving, or getting off the bus a stop early, the aim is to have fun and help raise money for a great cause. The much-loved charity is challenging participants to cover as many miles as they can across the eight-day event, be that with a team of friends and family or solo with your dog, going for a one-off long-distance stroll or even a five mile walk each day. Whatever participants choose, every walk will help Battersea be there for dogs and cats everywhere. For ideas and inspiration, Battersea’s Walk for Rescue page has plenty of fundraising tips.
