Take part in the Great Wilderness Challenge and raise funds for Scotland’s animals

The Scottish SPCA is encouraging animal lovers in the Highlands to take part in The Great Wilderness Challenge taking place on 17 August.

GWCWe are calling on active locals who are keen to get fit, get active and get outdoors this summer and raise funds for animals in need. 

Manager of the Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Inverness, Elaine Floyd said, “The Great Wilderness Challenge is a fantastic way to raise funds for animals in the local area, whilst getting fit in the process and having a bit of fun too!

“Participants can choose from a 25, 13, 10, 7, 2.8 or 1.4 mile walk/run so it’s perfect for people of different fitness levels and mobility. There’s a walk for everyone, from the super fit to complete beginners.”

Elaine added, “We don’t receive any government funding which means we rely on the public to be able to continue our work rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of our help.

“Anyone who sets themselves the challenge of taking part in one of the events really will be helping save lives.”
