The BCF Technology Vet Charity Challenge 2014 will launch today at BSAVA Congress and is now open for registration online.
The event takes place on Saturday September 27, at St Francis School, Pewsey, near Marlborough in Wiltshire.
The day consists of teams of four taking part in walking/running, cycling, kayaking and some orienteering as well as other mental and physical tasks.
Last year, the event raised more than £50,000 for the three selected animal based charities and in 2014 the charities being supported are Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, SPANA and Cats Protection.
Gavin Mitchell, from BCF Technology, said: “Interest in the Vet Charity Challenge was so great last year that we had teams on a waiting list.
“To ensure your team gets a place we highly recommend that you register your team on the website early. We will be entering five teams from BCF this year, such is the demand from our own staff.”
Andrew Groom from Kruuse added: “The Vet Charity Challenge is a great event. Helping you build your team within your veterinary practice, acting as a goal for those that want to become a bit fitter, encouraging training together over the summer months.
“It is great fun and also raises considerable sums of money for some really deserving charities.”
The Vet Charity Challenge is sponsored by BCF Technology, Kruuse and Vetoquinol and supported by the VMPA and Veterinary Practice magazine.
The 2014 event will be launched at BSAVA at 2pm today on the BCF Technology stand 414 and the Vet Charity Challenge will be at exhibition stand number 929.
