A Marathon Effort for Dogs

By Hamish Tims

I am for being active and tackling a marathon! You can support my endeavour by donating to one of my favourite charities, RSPCA QLD.

RSPCA QLD rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes animals across the state, caring for over 52,000 animals every year. It is the only charitable body responsible for investigating and prosecuting cruelty cases within Queensland, with the Inspectorate receiving over 17,800 reports of cruelty last year. RSPCA QLD care for wildlife, domestic and farm animals, providing a safe space for animals with less than 3% government funding annually.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of the animals of Queensland. Thank you!

My Updates

An idea and a start

Friday 18th Dec
So I have just committed to running my first ever full marathon, after running a few half marathons in 2020. I've lost a lot of fitness since then so will need to start my training from zero again, and be cautious with my body and various niggling injuries.

The thing that pushed me over the edge to committing to this is the great work being done by the RSPCA in helping stray and mistreated animals. In my current journey towards adopting a rescue dog, I've seen the amazing work they do everyday, and want to support them as much as possible.

Feel free to come along for the journey, join me for the run, or if that is not quite possible - please donate to my community fundraising team to help me reach my goals.

Thank you to my Sponsors
