In 2016 a stray dog named Gobi joined me as I ran a 155 mile race across the Gobi Desert in China. Our amazing true story and incredible journey changed both of our lives forever. 


Since my connection with Gobi I’ve been raising awareness and funding for ‘Adopt Don’t Shop’ and stray animals in need to help more animals just like Gobi to find their forever home. 


The 2 main charities myself and Gobi are connected with are Little Adoption Shelter in Beijing and Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. These 2 organisations do amazing work all day every day and their commitment to animals is inspiring me to run these 3 extreme races. 


Both shelters require significant amounts of funding just to survive and without donations cannot do the great work for animals that they do. If you can help with a little or a lot, any amount will help make a difference. 


100% donated split 50/50.
