‘Wag this Way’ is CFM Cash for Kids brand new dog walking event taking place in Maryport on Sunday 15th April. The event is the first of its kind in West Cumbria and hopes to attract many dog owners to this beautiful part of the County to collectively fundraise for a great local cause, whilst taking their dogs on an exciting walk.
The event begins just off Marina Road at 10:30am, where participants will walk together with their pooches along a 2.2mile route. The route covers coastal paths, grassy tracks and stunning sights of the lighthouse and working marina. Aimed at all dog walking abilities, the event encourages people to keep active, explore new walks and enjoy time spent meeting other like-minded pet owners. The importance of socialising dogs is also key, and can lead to happier and friendly pooches.
Wag this Way will also have a very special attendance from The Lakes popular Springer Spaniel duo Max and Paddy! Known to their 69,000 Facebook followers across the world, for their adventures in the Lake District and ‘flapometer’ videos. All dog participants will receive a doggy bag of treats and a Certificate of achievement.
Entry for the event costs a small donation to Cash for Kids and doggies are encouraged to seek further sponsorship from their pet pals, family and owners friends. All monies raised at the event goes to Cash for Kids, which in turn, is put back in to the local community through their granting system. Cash for Kids supports the 1 in 4 children living in Cumbria and South West Scotland who are disabled, disadvantaged or need additional support, and one hundred percent of donations stays local.
Cash for Kids Project Manager Katie Jones commented: “We are really excited for this event and hope that it is something which will grow in doggy attendance year on year.
“Maryport is such an underestimated location and the hidden gem of the Marina, seemed the perfect place to host such event. Cash for Kids supports thousands of disadvantaged children within Allerdale and Copeland each year and the generosity from people in West Cumbria makes a huge impact on our ability to do so. We hope that people will come from all corners of Cumbria to take part in Wag this Way and we’re looking forward to meeting lots of furry faces.”
