The Big Walk

100 miles, 8 days, 9th – 16th September 2017


In September this year our founder, Hannah Capon, and Holly, her 14 year old Collie (who suffers with arthritis) will be walking 100 miles along the South Downs Way, Sussex, to raise awareness for canine arthritis.

The unsupported expedition will take them 8 days and the pair will be camping each night along the way. Hannah has had a special cart designed to carry not only their gear but also Holly for the times when she's not feeling up to walking.

They can't wait to meet and engage with the dog-loving public and get spreading the word about Canine Arthritis Management, what we do and how we can help.

We'll be posting more details as soon as they're confirmed. Stay tuned...

We're always looking for supporters to help Hannah and Holly on their way and to spread the word about Canine Arthritis in general. To this end we've set up a Just Giving page.

Track their progress

Throughout The Big Walk Holly will be wearing a special pet-tracking collar kindly donated to us by our sponsor PawTrax. The collar will send out regular GPS signals so you can track our progress and work out where and when you can meet us on the way.
