A great supporter of EGLR Caron Reeves is planning a fundraising walk up Mount Snowdon in June and we would like to wish her the best of luck and also like you to support her in her endevours. She will be supported on her walk with her rescue lurcher Slim who is with her in the photo here. We asked Caron about her walk and the reasons she is doing it to raise funds for EGLR and this is what she had to say:-
I will be walking up Mount Snowdon in Wales on Saturday 27th June this year to raise much needed funds for EGLR and I am looking for supporters to help me raise much needed funds.
I have done hill walking before, but no mountain walking, simply because I have a fear of heights. This will mean I will be presented with personal challenges along my route, but knowing I am raising funds for EGLR will keep me going. For all the folk who know and have walked up Snowdon I will be walking up the Pyg Track and coming down the Miner's Track.
Slim, our rescued Lurcher pictured in the photo with me will be participating in the fundraising from the comfort of the settee!. He is 12 years of age and likes the slower pace of life nowadays.
I live on the most northerly island on the Shetland Islands and must be the most Northerly supporter of EGLR in the UK.
I am also doing the fundraising walk up Mount Snowdon in memory of our Otis who we adopted from EGLR and brought up to Shetland to live with us all. Sadly Otis developed Osteosarcoma and had to have his front leg and shoulder amputated. He made a remarkable recovery as a Tripawd and lived life to to the full on his three legs. Sadly however the cancer returned, this time to his lungs and we had to make the extremely hard decision to let him go.
Please support me and help raise funds for EGLR so they can continue to look after Mr Moon, Eddie, Scarlet, Dixie to name just a few of the many hounds in their care and find their forever homes.
