Paws for Prevention – new Summer dog walking campaign

Breast Cancer UK is launching their new summer dog walking campaign called, Paws for Prevention, a nationwide fundraising campaign to raise money to prevent breast cancer. We would love it if you could share the campaign with your readers.

We’re inviting dog owners across the UK to walk for at least 45 mins every day for 45 days and help raise funds for vital animal free research into breast cancer.  Are you up for it?  We know your little friend will be!

Did you know by walking 45 mins a day you will easily exceed the recommended 150 mins exercise per week which can reduce your risk of breast cancer by up to 30%?

1 in 7 women in the UK will get breast cancer at some point in their life, by taking part in Paws for Prevention you can help change that. Your support makes our work possible.

Victoria Goldsmith, community fundraising officer, explains “We’re asking dog lovers of the UK to get behind this campaign and raise vital funds to help us continue our important work to prevent breast cancer. Our funding has been hit hard by COVID-19, we can’t run our usual events and can’t access any government funding. Paws for Prevention will allow people to get out and raise money whilst still being safe, providing much needed funds to continue our work.

There will be the chance to win prizes supplied, from our dog friendly partners, for those who get involved. So come on everyone, it’s walkies time…..
