Why I Chose to Support this Charity -
Animals have always been a huge part of my life. Since I was 2 years old I have had a pet in my home, been around farm animals and wildlife. I have never 'owned' a pet, I feel we don't own them, they are a part of our family just as much as we are. I love my animals and would do anything for them, but unfortunately not everyone in the world feels this way and this is why World Animal Protection is so important. People depend on animals and they bring a great deal of joy into our lives. No animal deserves to live in pain or fear so this is why we need to stand up and fight for animal rights, to ensure that we improve the life that they live. We all have the power to make a change, we all have the power to make a difference - we have the voice - so this is why I chose this charity to speak up for the animals and make the world a better place.
World animal protection helps animals all over the world, not just in Australia. This Charity is made up of fantastic people that I have had the pleasure meeting after the 2016 City2Surf where I ran as a Gold runner for this charity raising over $1108.
