Are you ready to do something amazing this autumn? Join us in Dementia UK’s October Dog Walking Challenge! We’ll be teaming up with our dogs to walk 100km across the month and raise funds for Dementia UK to hire more specialist nurses. Time to dust off those hiking boots…
Walk 100km for a great cause
With the October Dog Walking Challenge, Dementia UK is inviting dog owners to make every walk count. We’ll be supporting this year’s event and we’re inviting all of you, our customers, to join us in raising funds to help Dementia UK hire more specialist nurses.
“Our tails.com pack are so pleased to be supporting Dementia UK for this year’s October Dog Walking challenge. As dog owners, we know getting out with your dog is a great way to spend quality time together, and being able to support such an important cause at the same time means so much to many of our team,” said Lina Merouani, who’s been working closely with the Dementia UK team.
We’ll be hitting the local park, exploring new hikes and more…How will you complete your 100km? Feel free to spread those steps across the month, wherever and whenever you like!
Sign up to the challenge, set up your fundraising page and receive your FREE dog bandana to get started. Plus you’ll get to join #TeamDementiaUK, meeting thousands of other dog walkers in their dedicated Facebook Group.
Making sure no one faces dementia alone
By 2025, more than one million people in the UK will be living with dementia. Nearly half of us will be affected by the condition at some point in our lives.
Every step you take and every penny you raise will help Dementia UK hire, support and develop specialist nurses. These qualified professionals provide life-changing support for families affected by dementia. They work in hospitals, GP practices and local community services to provide clinical, emotional and practical support.
