BHP 30/30 Challenge...Double the value of your donation!

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 13 May 2010 | 0 Comments


On Saturday 19th June, James Pregnell from BHP Billiton will once again be taking on the challenge of walking our dogs over 30 kms in the hope of raising funds for the Refuge. Last year, the support James received was amazing - which helped him battle through the appalling weather to finish his marathon.

James and Gabriel prepare for the challenge

We were thrilled when James told us he was willing to take on the challenge again and even more excited when he told us he'd manage to talk his work colleague, Gabriel Gnavi, into joining him. Having James and Gabriel tackling the challenge this year gives us the opportunity to try and top last year's mammoth fundraising effort.

James and Gabriel (pictured) are both committed to completing the marathon walk with the goal of raising up to $100,000 for our home, which will then be doubled by their employer, BHP Billiton. The ongoing support from BHP Billiton is one of the main reasons the Refuge can continue to rescue and rehome the many dogs that need our help every month of every year. Expecially given we don't receive any government funding, the generosity and enthusiasm of our wonderful donors and our loyal supporters make all the lives of the dogs for whom we care.

And so we urge you to support James and Gabriel. Regardless of the blisters and sore joints of last year (which we don't think James has told Gabriel about), these two heroes are determined to go the distance - but they need your support to make a difference. To show your support, just download the donation form (pdf 168kb) , select whether you are supporting James or Gabriel, and send it into the Refuge. Make sure you select that you are supporting the guys to get your donation matched by BHP Billiton.

Thank you in advance for any donation you can make - and rest assured that your generosity will go towards rescuing more abandoned, neglected and homeless dogs.
