This year I wanted my fundraising memory walk for Bowel Cancer UK to be a bit different; without the sponsorship pressure, so I made the decision that my own business New Dawn - Cornwall, would sponsor every dog £5 that we walked (during September). This also included friend's dogs that asked to join us too. This meant that the 29 doggies who walked together with us, helped raise £145 towards our total amount of £235 for Bowel Cancer UK.
Huge thanks to all the dogs that gave me their company on our Walkie's Together fundraising walks during September; including my pair Charlie and Obi and all their friends that boarded with us or joined our weekly walks. Also special thanks to Gemma who lost her husband to the disease, who joined me on my 5 mile memory walk and Rachel who lost her dad - all too young.
Total now raised since I began the charity walks back in 2017 currently stands at = £5,672.91 - all in memory of Marty and my other friends that have lost their battle with the disease.

If you'd like to sponsor us, you have until the end of October : )

I made 3 payments to the charity - the first was paid direct to the charity of £125, which meant it didn't show up on our fundraising page : (
Blog - Never too Young
This blog is to carry on Marty's fighting spirit and help raise awareness of bowel cancer to others. It is also a place for you to share any of the things you have done or are doing in memory of him.
