Canine Partners events and challenge coordinator Holly Bryan said: “We are looking for people of all abilities who are willing to take on a challenge this year in aid of Canine Partners. All we ask is that you give something back by raising money for us through sponsorship.


The charity can also offer places to those who have already signed up to an event but wish to support Canine Partners.

Canine Partners is the official charity of this year’s Reading Half Marathon and has 30 guaranteed places available via its gold package.
