A fellow RVN and her husband and dog, will be running 17 miles, covering the 6 peaks of our village in North Somerset.
Read why below:
My nephew Max always seemed to have a special connection with dogs. He always had time for them and they loved him for that.
He was taken from us suddenly and tragically in March of 2020 aged just 13. He suffered complications after a heart operation which was supposed to give him a new lease of life. After 4 harrowing days of life support we knew we had to say goodbye to Max forever.
This was just when the world was beginning to feel the impact of the pandemic and as a result we could not have a funeral or mourn him in the way we should have done.
In Max’s memory we would like to sponsor the training of a Medical Detection Dog . These incredible animals are just beginning to show us the full immensity of their skills in detecting illness long before it is noticeable to humans. I have long believed dogs can contribute to our health in so many ways and this is just one.
Myself, my husband and our dog, will be running 17 miles, covering the 6 peaks of our village in North Somerset.
