Wagathon - Walk 9K For K9s


The past year has been challenging for many dog charities in terms of fundraising due to the pandemic. We want to help as many UK dog charities as possible to collectively raise a whopping £1 million!

Whether it is for vulnerable dogs living in shelters, dog welfare or training service dogs, we want to ensure that vital funds are raised to support charities like yours.

To achieve this, we need you to encourage your supporters to sign up their furry companions to take part in a national Walk 9K for K9s challenge in celebration of National Dog Day on Thursday 26th August 2021!


In celebration of National Dog Day on Thursday 26th August 2021 we want to help UK dog charities to collectively raise £1 million.

We want you to encourage your supporters to sign up their pooches to take part in a national Walk 9K for K9s challenge.


Dogs to complete the Walk 9K for K9s challenge this August Bank Holiday weekend (28-30th August). For dogs who are unable to complete the full 9K in a day they can spread their challenge across each date.


If your charity would like to join the nationwide Wagathon™ campaign and grab a slice of the £1 million, all you need to do is create a campaign page and encourage your supporters to sign up their dogs to take part in the Walk 9K for K9s challenge.
