PETS THAT PREVENT: APRIL CHALLENGE

Pets that PreventIf the true owner of your heart is your pet, then this fundraiser will be right up your street! Could your animal be one of our Pets that Prevent?

Did you know that April is National Pet Awareness Month? A month dedicated to celebrating the importance of pets and highlighting how, as well as being loyal companions, they can support us through challenging times in our life.

We’re encouraging our supporters to celebrate the four-legged friends in their lives this April. We challenge you to pledge £30, and then walk 30 miles in 30 days with your cherished companion.

Want to go the extra mile? Why not dress your pets up in pink and share some photos with your friends and family using the hashtag #PetsThatPrevent. Not only to bring them joy, but also to gently remind them to be breast cancer aware. Don’t forget to tag Prevent Breast Cancer so we can enjoy the photos too!

Dogs, cats, horses, tortoises… any animal is welcome to get involved and help us raise awareness and funds to prevent breast cancer. We understand that walking your horse or hamster for 30 miles is an entirely different ball game, but thats all part of the fun!

 

READY TO PLEDGE?

Sign up to the challenge below. Fill in the form to register your pledge for free. You will then receive a link to either make a £30 donation now, or we will send you a reminder later in the month.

For £1 a day you’ll have the perfect excuse to get out into the beautiful fresh air this Spring and spend some quality time with your beloved pet. At the same time knowing you’re helping prevent a devastating disease for future generations.

 

 

WHAT INSPIRED THIS FUNDRAISER?

The idea was born following the success of Francine Goldman’s sponsored dog walk which provided a distraction during her diagnosis and treatment.

Francine raised over £5000 in support of Prevent Breast Cancer. Click here to read all about Francine’s journey.
