WALKING ALL OVER THE WORLD

Sunday 19th June is a very special day for greyhounds, lurchers and their owners who will all be stepping out to celebrate the 7th, but newly renamed, Great Global Greyhound Walk. Hounds and humans will be walking simultaneously at parks, woods, beaches, heaths and at the odd Stately Home right across the world. Numerous walks have already been confirmed is places as far afield as Canada and New Zealand as well as London, Beddgelert in Wales, Edinburgh, Cornwall and Yorkshire. More locations are being added day by day and we hope to have a walk taking place in as many countries as possible.

John Homer and Karen Farley would like to welcome all sight hound owners in the North Kent and Medway area to join the walk which commences at 10.00am, the meeting point is the Visitor Centre, Riverside Country Park, Lower Rainham Road, Gillingham, Kent ME7 2XH. The walk is for all and is suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. About one hour long, there will also be a short walk for those less able or whose dog is elderly. All breeds of dog are welcome although they will not be counted for the GGGW; entry is by sponsorship or donation on the day. All those taking part will receive a rosette and proceeds are to go to RGT Brands Hatch and other Greyhound charities. There are toilet and refreshment facilities on site. The Retired Greyhound Trust Road Show will be attending. Please feel free to stay longer and enjoy the Parks facilities and take part in more informal walks.

Please join us for a really fun day and the opportunity meet up with some old friends and to raise funds for a cause that is close to all of our hearts?

In 2015, the previously named Great British Greyhound Walk, had 4605 dogs attending walks all over the world and the success of these walks prompted our new name, the Great Global Greyhound Walk. Can we reach the magic 5000 sighthounds this year? – we hope so.

There is no need to book just download a sponsorship form, raise what you can and turn up.
