Join a pawsome event with your four-footed friends
A new event for dog lovers has been launched in Birmingham.

The 5k Doggy Dash will be held in the scenic settings of Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens on Sunday 29 September at 10.30am. As well as being a fun day out for all the family, doggy dashers will be raising money for Birmingham's John Taylor Hospice and helping to support hundreds of local families in need of hospice care.

Community and Events Fundraising Manager at John Taylor Hospice Emily Boate said: "We are so excited to launch this new fundraising event for dog owners and their canine companions. The Doggy Dash is the pawfect fun-packed way to spend your Sunday with fellow dog lovers! The event will be non-competitive with a relaxed atmosphere so you can pick your pace. And, when you cross the finish line, you and your pooch will be presented with a Doggy Dash medal in recognition of your achievements."

John Taylor Hospice provides expert end of life care for local families both at its hospice in Erdington and in the local community. It costs 15,000 to run all of its services each day. "Whether you run, jog or walk the 5K route, you'll be raising vital funds for local families and helping to ensure hospice care and support is always there for people when and where they need it," said Emily.

Emily added: "We can't wait to welcome lots of families and their best buddies to the event on 29 September. So, please join us for a fun jog with your dog and sign up for your ticket today you'd be barking to miss out!"
