The weather forecast for this upcoming weekend looks surprisingly gorgeous. All of us here at The Amazing Blog are anxiously waiting to soak up some sun. Fortunately, we have found the perfect philanthropy event to do just that with the added accompaniment of 100 cute four-legged friends. This is not a wild stampede but rather a leisurely charitable dog walking event called Best Paw Forward. Taking place in the Highgate Woods, Best Paw Forward is a sponsored dog walk in aid of supporting Cancer Research UK.
Beginning at 10am this Sunday, June 9th, local dog owners will gather to trek through the leafy woods as they walk to raise money for a brilliant cause. This is a great way for you and your favourite pet to take a lovely 4km stroll while benefiting a life-saving organisation. Weaving through the beautiful Green Heritage Site, the walk will last about an hour giving you plenty of time to soak up some sun and enjoy the natural surroundings. In addition to the forest hike, Dima Dogs (from ITV's 'That Dog Can Dance') will host a live dog display performance that is sure to be fascinating. Also, there will be a raffle and awarded prizes to those who raise the most sponsorship as well as the best dressed dog. All participants will also receive a goody bag for them and their pooch to take away.
Nowadays, it seems that just about everyone knows someone in their life who is fighting cancer. Supporting cancer research organizations is surely something that we at The Amazing Blog proudly advocate. Cancer Research UK is an excellent foundation that hosts many charitable events. They are up to date and seem to be one of the leaders of the pack in cancer research, resources, and support. To learn more or donate do visit their website.
