My story

[p]On the 26th April 2020 I will be living my life long dream of running the London Marathon. I have chosen to run for the Guide Dogs for the Blind association to support the amazing work they continue for many across the UK that suffer with either blindness of a visual impairment.[/p][p]Thank you for your support.[/p][p]Below shows just how vital your generous support is:[/p][p]In 2018, it cost around £63,000 to breed, train and support a guide dog from birth to retirement, however, the cost of a guide dog is impacted not just by the cost of breeding and training, but also the cost of all of our support functions for the partnership over an average of seven years, as well as external support such as food and vets’ bills. [/p][p]In 2018, the cost of a guide dog was broken down as follows:[/p][p]Breeding and puppy walking cost – £10,100[/p][p]Cost to breed, train and partnership – £48,100[/p][p]Ongoing support – £2,500[/p][p]A guide dog owner may have as many as eight guide dogs in their lifetime bringing the total cost to around £500,000.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
