Fundraising events are vital for our charity. With some many being cancelled over the past 18 months, we have had to ask our wonderful supporters to help raise funds with their own challenge they can do from home.

From this idea we have created the K9 Challenge. Where we ask supporters to “9 somethings” in the 9 month (September) to help us train and support our life saving “K9’s” - our wonderful Support Dogs.

How to get involved

99K in September

  • One great way could be for you to commit to walking or running 99k in September (this is approximately 2 miles a day) We can provide free running vest and materials to anyone committed to raising in sponsorship a minimum of £50 for our charity.
  • Spread the word with family, friends and colleagues. Get as much sponsorship as you can and encourage others to join you or do their own K9 Challenge.
  • And Go…! Do your challenge any time during September.

Other ideas
If this doesn’t appeal why not walk or run for 999 metres, 9km or 9 miles? Can you get 9 friends together for a sing along? We are asking you to sign up for the K9 Challenge during September in whatever way suits you best. You can be as creative as you like, just stick to the number 9 be this 9 minutes, 9 hours or 99 reps. The ideas and options are endless!

The impact it makes
Support Dogs relies entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising has been particularly difficult since the pandemic. The funds raised from a similar challenge to this we ran last year raised enough to provide over 17,000 hours of support to families provide by autism, epilepsy or a physical disability.
