Hackney Half Marathon 2021

Sunday 26th September | Hackney Marshes

Wild at Heart Foundation want to end the suffering of stray dogs all over the world. We believe that each and every dog deserves the chance to live a healthy, happy life, free from the threat of pain, suffering, cruelty or neglect. We are working to compassionately reduce the world’s 600 million stray dog population.

We champion compassion and collaboration; we believe that there is power in kindness and community, and that by working together towards a common goal, we can help make the world a better, kinder place.

With your help and the help of our incredible partners around the world, we can help save rescue dogs in need from the rising tide of cruelty, abuse and neglect.

Thank you for all your support and let’s get fundraising!
