Charity of the Week

Two smiley Donkey Sanctuary runners

Join Team Donkey Sanctuary At Big Leeds Races

Team Donkey Sanctuary will be out in strength In Leeds in May for the Half Marathon and again in July for the Leeds 10K. And they want you on their team at these big Yorkshire events.

The Donkey Sanctuary has discounted charity places available in both Leeds Half Marathon and Leeds 10K and they are inviting you to run with Team Donkey Sanctuary - whichever distance you choose, you’ll be doing something amazing to help save donkeys and mules form a lifetime of cruelty and suffering.

Join Team Donkey Sanctuary and you will be supplied with a free technical running vest in the charity colours plus a fundraising pack. The charity will also be with you every step of the way with advice and support, and the backing you get on the day from Donkey Sanctuary supporters and the crowds that line the route is fantastic and will ensure you have an absolutely brilliant day.

Based in the UK, The Donkey Sanctuary is an international animal welfare charity that exists to protect donkeys and mules and promote their welfare worldwide. There are an estimated 50 million donkeys across the world and these trusting, intelligent animals contribute so much to mankind.

Many millions are used from infancy into their old age in the construction industry all over the world; in tourism on several continents and, of course, as vital transport for communities reliant on donkeys for their livelihoods. But many are suffering due to overwork, injury, neglect, abuse and abandonment and they need our help right now. Please join Team Donkey Sanctuary for Leeds Half Marathon or Leeds 10K and help protect one of the world’s most humble creatures from a lifetime of abuse and suffering.

So now the call is going out to #DoItForDonkeys
