Melissa's 2013 Dartmoor Challenge

Raising money for: Nowzad Dogs


The Challenge

On the 21st September I will taking part in a 15 mile trek across the wilds of Dartmoor followed by a 100ft climb and abseil.

The Charity

Nowzad Dogs is set up to relieve the suffering of stray & abandoned animals in Afghanistan, we hear everyday of the horrors of war but often do not hear much of the plight of animals that often struggle to survive against insurmountable odds. As a huge animal lover, Nowzad is v close to my heart & do incredible work in the hardest of circumstances

The Training

In order to take part in this challenge to raise vital funds for Nowzad Dogs & to do my part to make a difference to the animals that I care so much about, I embarked on my own very personal journey which has seen me lose 6 & a half stone (93 pounds) in just over a year. As my very first charity challenge ever it is something I previously could of only dreamed of taking part in & has given me the drive to not only raise as much as I can for Nowzad but to continue on the journey I have started.
