About the Event
Join us at the Sanctuary for our Sponsored Walk - Setting off in the scenic countryside we will be covering approximately four miles in a round trip back to the sanctuary. You can take part on your own, in a group, and dogs are of course welcome!
We hope the weather will be fair, but cool enough for our canine companions as they have struggled in previous years when the weather has been too hot.
We do not have a minimum sponsorship required and every little does help. If ten people can raise £10 that is £100... and so on.
There are several ways you can raise money too! Join us on People's fundraising, Just Giving, Go Fund Me, or Facebook by setting up your own fundraising page and linking all donations to Crosskennan. Need help setting up? Just give us a shout! You can keep things old school and collect sponsorship with one of our sponsorship forms!
You can also do a mix of everything, the main thing is to let all your friends and family know what you're up to and get them to sponsor and share!
On the Day
We will confirm exact times closer to the event but we hope to have everyone meet at the Sanctuary for 12pm sharp. Once we have everyone registered we can set off. The walk is approximately 4 miles and is all on public roads (although no footpaths). The walk is a circuit taking us up and down some small inclines and through some areas of Tardee Forest. We will finish up back at the main yard again where we will have refreshments for you to enjoy and we hope all your canine companions will join in with our Fun Dog Show!
We do have limited parking at the sanctuary, as many of you know we are limited on space in general so we do ask people to carpool as much as they can. Parking is on the roadside only, with approximate room for 10 cars off road. If weather permits we can open the bottom paddock for parking but we cannot guarantee this.
So we can get an idea of how many people are coming and so we can best track the various sponsorship methods we are asking people to please sign up. We can share your fundraisers too then!
Take Part Remotely!
If you cannot make the day you can still get involved; just get sponsored and complete in your own time at home. Do send us some photos/updates of your own progress!
Volunteers needed on the day too!
If you're a regular volunteer and can help out with the walk/parking or signing people in please let the team know!
