Big Purple Dog Walk

Calling all canine companions! This March, MS-UK are inviting you to join #TeamPaws and take part in our pawesome Big Purple Dog Walk. Wherever you are in the country, now is the pawfect time for you and your best four-legged friend to stay active and make every walk matter to help people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS).

During MS-UK’s loneliness and isolation research, we noticed that our furry friends play a big part in the MS Community, whether that be keeping their owner’s company, being the reason someone may go outside each day, or simply by just being there!

“I am so pleased that I took up this challenge as it has benefitted me as well as raising a staggering amount. It has motivated me to get out the house each day and go to different places.Gill Lewis

So, whether your pooch is a pampered Poodle, a delicate Dachshund or a loving Labrador, all hounds are welcome to put their paws to the test and help to raise vital funds for MS-UK. Get your free and exclusive dog bandana with your first donation for your pooch to wear with pride. When you reach your target of £100, your dog will receive their very own rosette and certificate for their achievements.

To join #TeamPaws all you need to do is…

  1. Sign your dog up to the challenge
  2. Set up your JustGiving page
  3. Come and join the pack on our Facebook group
  4. Grab your lead and go!

A few ideas for you and your pooch!

  • A mile every day for the whole month
  • Complete a full marathon distance in one month
  • A lap of the garden every day with your dog
  • A new walk or visit a new beauty spot every week
  • Put your dog’s agility to the test and teach them some new tricks
  • Why not create your own team of walking pups?

Don’t have a dog but would love to take part?

See how Ralph & Chris joined our Big Purple Dog Walk last year without having a pooch of their own! Does your neighbour or family member have a dog that could join you for The Big Purple Dog Walk?
