Harry, from our Men's Performance squad is running the London Marathon on Sunday 2nd October 2022 in support of Battersea Dogs and Cats home, you can donate on Harry's fundraising page. You can read more about his journey and why he is supporting Battersea Dogs and Cat home below.
8 years ago, our family dog Pepper was found roaming the streets of London. After she was found by Battersea she struggled to find a forever home due to her underlying insecurities around different people and other animals. Fast forward to the present day and, well, they say "It's a dog's life" for a reason! Pepper is incredibly content and happy with a daily routine exclusively consisting of sleeping, eating, walking, running, playing and, of course, a whole lot of fussing.
Without our support, Battersea and other rescue centres will not be-able to provide the care they do. It is estimated there are approximately 67,000 stray dogs and 1,000,000 stray cats on UK streets. Unfortunately, these animals are often a product of illegal and immoral breeding and careless owners. But Battersea works hard to ensure that every animal that comes into their care is well looked after and can be rehomed with an owner suitable to their needs. Every penny you can spare will help motivate me to continue training and hopefully cross the finish line.
Thank you, Harry (and Pepper)
