Anne Teasdale

Thames Path 100km Challenge

This is Jasper, a 6-year-old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever who has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

After researching the disease, his owner Anne was shocked to learn how common cancer is in dogs and found out that we are the only UK charity with a dedicated research programme focused on beating canine cancer.

Wanting to help make a difference to dogs like her own Jasper, Anne signed up for the Thames Path 100km Challenge to raise money to go towards our research.

“I have decided to fundraise for this cause to help the many dogs out there facing all sorts of cancer,” Anne explained. “I do a number of ultra-marathons each year but decided that Thames Path would be a great opportunity to raise some sponsorship.”

It is something positive I can do and helps me focus on things other than chemo appointments.

We’re so pleased to reveal that Anne not only completed this walk in just under 25 hours, but also raised over £1700 – an incredible achievement and phenomenal total! Although the walk was gruelling, Anne pushed through and was delighted to meet Jasper and Qwin at the end, both sporting their AHT jackets.

Once again, and on behalf of all dogs affected by cancer, a massive well done and thank you Anne!
