Vet team take on ‘The Suffering’ in aid of Vets for Change
A team from Town & Country Veterinary Centre in Market Harborough is preparing to take on a 10km obstacle course race so gruelling it is called 'The Suffering'. The race takes place in the hilly and rocky grounds of Rockingham Castle, Leicestershire, on Saturday 12th March. The Town & Country team is hoping to raise £1,000 for Vets for Change which is fundraising to vaccinate dogs in Africa against rabies. The Suffering 10km, an annual team event, features more than 25 water, mud and rope-based obstacles. The team from Town & Country includes vets, vet nurses, students and receptionists.
Vet Michael Lander, said: "We are big supporters of the work of Vets for Change which is currently fundraising for its next mass vaccination programme in South Africa. The race does sound gruelling and I have done no training as yet although some of my colleagues have been hitting the gym for the past couple of months. We will all pull together on the big day and getting everyone round the course is our goal.
"We'd be very grateful for donations to help us reach our target for Vets for Change which does such fantastic work and have set up a just giving page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/townandcountry-veterinarycentre."
