Registration for this year’s Vet Charity Challenge, where participants raise money for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, SPANA and Animals Asia, is now open.
Practices can now register for this year’s Vet Charity Challenge.
The event, set to take place on September 28 at Pershore College in Worcestershire, will see teams of four take on running, cycling and kayaking trials, along with some mental puzzles and orienteering tasks.
Competitors in last year’s challenge raised more than £20,000 for SPANA, Pet Blood Bank and Hounds for Heroes. This year’s chosen charities are Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, SPANA and Animals Asia.
Kent-based Parkvets has already registered two teams for this year’s event.
Anne Goad, from Parkvets, said: “Teamwork at Parkvets is really important and events, such as the Vet Charity Challenge, really help to boost team spirit.
“We find the build-up is just as important as the event, as working towards a specific goal outside of work helps with the work/life balance and provides a real sense of achievement on the day. And, of course, we are thrilled to be supporting the charities.”
Event co-organiser Jason Rogers, from BCF Technology, said: “Teams are registering every day and we are delighted with the response. But there are a few team spaces left, so I urge practices to register a team of four online now.
“The team rivalry between the three BCF teams that have entered has also already started,” he added.
