We can’t all climb mountains but we can all do something to make life better for the shelter dogs still dreaming of finding love.
The Snowdon Challenge was inspired by Ghost Dog Jack, a rescued Greek dog, who village post lady, Sophie, met on her rounds. Jack came to the UK in 2019 and over 3 years Sophie watched as Jack slowly learned to let strangers into his life. With each milestone Sophie couldn’t forget the reasons Jack was so traumatized. She knew she was powerless to change his past but was determined to do whatever she could do for the dogs left behind.
In 2022 Sophie set her own challenge and on the hottest UK day on record, together with 6 friends, they trekked Snowdon 3 times in one day and raised a massive £10,687 for Jack’s old shelter.
In 2023 they did it all over again! This time with a group of 17 friends and smashed the previous year’s total with £10,810 raised.
An enormous thank you to our doggie sponsors for caring about their friends left behind in hell. If your dog would like to become a sponsor they can do so here: www.justgiving.com/campaign/barking-mad-snowdon-challenge-2023 or by clicking the button below.
