JAM’s support for the Society for Abandoned Animals continues with the Asics Greater Manchester Marathon.
JAM’s seasoned ‘do gooder’, Paul Toms, will be running the Manchester Marathon on 10th April, to raise money for one of JAM’s chosen charities, The Society for Abandoned Animals.
This local charity, based in JAM’s hometown of Sale, South Manchester, seeks to re-home unwanted and abandoned cats, dogs and rabbits. The animals are given food, shelter and veterinary care, until loving new homes are found. The SAA rely solely on donations to stay running and JAM has already run a number of events throughout the year to raise money for this worthy cause, including bake sales and fancy dress days.
Luckily, from what we have read, the Asics Greater Manchester Marathon is the ‘flattest and friendliest’ marathon in the UK, so achieving your target of completing the marathon in under 5 hours should be easy, hey Paul…?! 😉
In all seriousness, this will be an incredible feat of persistence, strength and endurance. The money raised will go a long way in making a real difference to the lives of local animals. We’d like to wish Paul the very best of luck, and thank him for his amazing commitment to the cause.
Let’s help Paul reach his target of £1,000 (enough to vaccinate 300 dogs) – click here to donate.
