Get active in 2013!

10 Jan 2013

It's that time again when we've made New Year's resolutions and are trying really hard to keep them.

If yours is to keep fit - or even to get fit - we thought we'd make it a little bit easier by telling you about the fantastic range of events you can get involved in this year to help raise funds for Scotland's abused, abandoned and injured animals.

From running to walking, cycling to skydiving, abseiling to whitewater rafting, we've got something to suit everyone!

Running enthusiasts can take part in the Edinburgh Marathon or Loch Ness Marathon running festivals and enjoy Scotland's stunning scenery while raising vital funds. If a marathon sounds too scary there are shorter runs to choose from.

If you'd prefer something a bit gentler, the Walk for Scotland is a fun and memorable event in the historic city of Edinburgh for all abilities and you can even enter with your dog!

For the daredevils out there we've got whitewater rafting, a 165 foot abseil down the iconic Forth Rail Bridge or, for the truly brave, skydiving at various locations throughout the country.

If you're looking for an adventure this year, take a look at our overseas events which include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world, or trekking through the Kalimantan jungle.

What a great way to get active and help Scotland's animals at the same time! For a full list of our fundraising events in 2013 please click here >

We're also looking for enthusiastic volunteers who can shake a collection tin for us during various events.

If you'd like to take part in an event, volunteer or have a great idea about a fundraising activity you'd like to hold yourself, please email us, selecting 'events'.

Don't forget, there are lots of other ways you can help us without getting your pulse racing! If you're planning a wedding why not take a look at our gorgeous wedding favours? You can also recycle your old and broken jewellery, used ink cartridges, unwanted CDs and DVDs as well as foreign currency.

If you aren't able to take part in an event this year and aren't already a member, you can help us continue our vital work by joining for as little as £1 a week.
