My story

[p]Hi,[/p][p][br][/p][p]In April 2018 and 2019 I was lucky enough to get a chance to run London Marathon .. people like you help to raise over £2,000 for the Support Dogs Charity.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Now for 2020, at 62; I am again running the London Marathon for this amazing charity again...[/p][p][br][/p][p]Support Dogs is a registered national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. They provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this.[/p][p][br][/p][p]They specialise in three specific programmes:[/p][p][br][/p][p]Autism assistance dogs for children aged three to ten years with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. The dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, 10-55 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure, which enables them to get to a place of their choosing and take control of the situation.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs; providing them with greater independence and safety.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Established in 1992 Support Dogs is a registered charity and provides all it services entirely free of charge to those in need of them. However the charity relies solely on voluntary donations and receives no government funding.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Now I am looking forward to another winter of cold weather running; knowing you can inspire me with your support. Really was hard work last year, the response was amazing and i completed the my best ever race.[/p][p][br][/p][p]This year I would like to smash my target to ensure one more Dog receives another years training to support someone, needing its help.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Love it if you could watch this short video to show you the benefits these wonderful guys do:[/p][p][br][/p][p]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJFp5odefp8[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for you support, the Dogs really need it....[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Nik.[/p]
