Jerry Green’s 60 miles in May challenge!

Jerry Green’s 60 miles in May challenge!

Like many charities, the Covid-19 pandemic has hit Jerry Green Dog Rescue hard.

With all of their fundraising events cancelled for the foreseeable future and with restrictions on their rehoming ability, generating income has not only become a challenge but is vital in order to protect the charity’s future.

Claire Ryan, Fundraising Manager for the rescue says: “It is a worrying time for us but we are doing all we can to keep going and raise funds for our rescue dogs so they can live happy and healthy lives until we are able to find them forever homes.

“We thought while the sun is beginning to shine and with many of us spending more time outdoors, May would be a great time to launch a challenge that is not only fun but is sure to get you up on your feet!”

Starting on May 1st, the charity is asking you to complete 60 miles over the course of the month while fundraising for their dogs along the way. They’re encouraging any one of any physical ability to get involved – you can walk it, run it, cycle it, hop it! However, you would like to complete it you can.

Signing up couldn’t be simpler with their 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Sign up via this link: Then set up a Facebook fundraiser and share it with your friends and family asking for support

Step 2: Join their Facebook group where those who are completing the challenge will be sharing their progress and offering encouragement to keep you motivated

Step 3: Get on your feet (it’s less than 2 miles a day!)

Step 4: Complete 60 miles

Not only will you receive a thank you pack once the challenge is over there are also prizes up for grabs!

If you raise £50+ you will receive a ‘Adopt Don’t Shop’ trolley coin with your pack.

If you raise £75+ you will receive a ‘Adopt Don’t Shop’ trolley coin and t-shirt with your pack, and if you raise and incredible £200+ you will receive all of that, plus a cosy hoodie.

Claire continued: “The money you raise will help us to rescue and rehome hundreds of dogs in need, providing food and nourishment, training and enrichment, and life changing veterinary care. If you can support us by getting involved our furry friends would very much appreciate it!”
