Support our vet hero who’s run the Virgin Money London Marathon

Our vets work tirelessly to save pets’ lives every day, but Chris one of our long-serving vets has done even more! On 23 April he ran the Virgin Money London Marathon, after months of training hard in preparation for the challenging 26 mile route. His goal wasn’t just to run this famous course – he ran every mile to raise as much money as possible to care for the sick and injured pets desperately in need of our help every day.

Chris finished the marathon in an impressive 3 hours and 36 minutes and wants to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported him!

Thank you

Support our vet hero who’s run the Virgin Money

Can you make all his hours of training worth it, and spare 50p, £1 or even £2 a mile to help poorly pet?

Meet Chris

“I’m proud to have been a PDSA Vet for the past 19 years. Working in one of our Pet Hospitals means I see first-hand just how urgently our help is needed – the pain in pets’ eyes when they’re sick or injured, and the worry of their owners. 

"In order to treat these pets, PDSA depends on the generosity of kind supporters. Together we can make the difference." 

I’m asking if you’ll kindly sponsor me to help more pets survive? Every mile I ran in the marathon on 23 April was for the pets that rely on PDSA to save their lives. The support of everyone who has kindly donated already really kept me going on the big day.

I really want to raise as much money as I can though, and I’d be so grateful if you can sponsor me today. Any amount you can afford will really help me and my colleagues treat more poorly pets.”
