Meet 09:45 @ Wimbledon Common. Full Details on Facebook.
Note – Wimbledon common conservators have said we must pay 50p per human head taking part so please make sure you bring that. I hope this won’t dent any donations to the bucket for WGW.
Every year, the event has a theme and this year it’s “blue” so feel free to don blue clothing/accessories (humans and hounds).
Usual rules apply
1. All dogs on short, fixed leads
2. Poop dealt with (pick up or stick’n’flick if appropriate)
3. Please bring a donation or make online through PayPal beforehandFundraising
Usually Surrey Sighthound Walking Group(SSWG) fundraises for both Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare (WGW) and Celia Cross Greyhound Trust (CCGT), splitting donations 50:50.
This walk though is in aid only of WGW as CCGT will be running its own GGGW21 down at Sun Valley. Event header photo is our GGGW19 walk!
The Great Global Greyhound Walk is an annual dog-walking event that aims to raise the profile of rescued and retired (ex-racing) greyhounds, showing the world what beautiful companions these dogs make.
It brings owners together regardless of where their hound is from, to celebrate greyhounds and other sighthounds, to raise awareness of hounds in need and to promote sighthounds as pets in a BIG way.
The initiative has grown from 1,624 sighthounds attending 23 UK walks in 2010, to 8,795 sighthounds walking ‘together’ across the world at 275 walks in 2019!
