SPANA - Stride Out this summer for the working animals of the world

SPANASPANA, the charity for the working animals of the world, is calling on people to Stride Out this summer and hold a sponsored horse ride, walk, cycle, or run in aid of the charity.

The new fundraiser invites people to pick the Stride Out activity that best suits them and to choose the location, date and distance of their event. For those who wish to follow in the footsteps of working animals, a selection of Stride Out routes with animal connections are also on offer such as canal towpaths, drovers’ roads and bridleways.

Funds raised from the events will help SPANA provide more free veterinary treatment for hardworking horses, donkeys, mules and other animals in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Andy Stringer, Veterinary Director for SPANA, said: “In developing countries poor families rely on working animals to make a living, and these animals will often work day in, day out with little rest. But a life of work needn’t be a life of misery, and through free veterinary care, education and training, and emergency response, we’re working to change animals’ lives.

“By Striding Out this summer, as well as having a brilliant time, you’ll be helping us take giant strides forward to improve the welfare of working animals worldwide.”
