A dog owner is taking part in the Lichfield 10k road race to raise funds for the care of older animals.

And now forty-seven-year-old Kate Lee is appealing for sponsors to join her fundraising drive.

Stafford-based Kate will be raising funds for the Oldies Club – a group which helps find new homes for older dogs. 

And despite having reservations about taking on the challenge, Kate believes running for a cause close to her heart will see her through.

She said:

“I actually hate running and the thought of the race fills me with dread and so I needed a reason to keep going. As I have run round my training routes my mind has wandered far and wide on various topics intended to keep my mind off the pain – and Oldies Club was one of the these topics.

“Eventually the light dawned and I decided to run the race for Oldies Club. That will mean that I will be raising money for the beautiful older dogs in need of some help, and they will be helping me to achieve my goal. When I start to falter I will picture the lovely faces of the dogs in Oldies Club care and remember all my sponsors relying on me to complete the run in order to raise money to help the dogs they all care about. I will then feel incredibly guilty about even thinking about stopping.”

The Lichfield 10k road race takes place on September 6. To sponsor Kate you can visit her fundraising website.
