My Big Walkies
We’re expecting thousands of dogs and their owners to take on the challenge of walking 10,000 steps a day during October. We’ll be working together to help raise money for animals.
Do it in your own time, at your own pace
We all know that dogs love walkies, but walkies are good for humans too!
This October we’re getting dog owners and dog lovers alike out and about with My Big Walkies. It’s a challenge, but a pawfectly do-able one, we promise.
All we ask is that you meet your walking goal every day for a month. Everything else is up to you. We’ll help you choose your own fundraising target, and you can complete it all in your own time and at your own pace.
Signing up is simple – there are only four steps to take before you get started on your first 10,000. Let’s get ready for My Big Walkies!
Enjoy your walkies and help animals too
Raising doggie dosh can be fun and easy. We bet that you and your four-legged friend will find plenty of support on your walkies, so let’s see how much money we can raise for animals this October.
We’ll be helping you with your sponsorship every step of the way. Here are just a few things we’ll do to get your tail wagging:
- We’ll walk you through making your very own JustGiving page. It’s essential for fundraising, and it also a great place to tell your story, share your progress and keep your sponsors up-to-date with all you My Big Walkies adventures!
- You’ll be able to stay in touch with a whole network of other My Big Walkies doggies and their walkers by connecting through social media pics and posts. Following each other is a great way to stay inspired and motivated.
- You’ll be able to set your own special fundraising target with us, and we’ll tell you about how it could help dogs (and other animals) in our care.
- We’ve got a whole bundle of fundraising ideas that we’ll be sharing with you throughout your journey – some of them will make your friends laugh, some of them will help you bond with your pooch, and some of them will be as exciting as going for walkies is!
Have a fur-tastic time
Whether you’re taking part in My Big Walkies on your own, with a dog, with friends or with colleagues – the most important thing is that you have fun!
Let’s get outdoors and make walkies extra special this October.
