Friendicoes Brings You A Marathon To Help Your Furry Friends

Nidhi posted on 5th May

What Is It?

Disheartened by the number of injured and starved stray dogs on the streets of Delhi NCR? If the plight of our furry friends on the streets stirs your soul, here’s how you can contribute.

Cause for Paws, an initiative by Nisha and Ekta, has partnered with Friendicoes SECA to fulfil their goal of getting a minimum of 100 dogs sterilised over the next three months. Join their charity run {three kms and six kms} in association with Gurgaon Road Runners.

This annual event is aimed at spreading awareness and raising funds, all of which will be donated to Friendicoes SECA.

Who Is It For?

Runners and animal lovers, this one is for you! The short distances also make it ideal for beginners. A warm-up session and follow-up activities and games are also on the cards.

Why Should I Go For It?

A day of fun and fitness, and all of it for a cuddly cause; who can miss this? Sterilisation not only controls reproduction, but also leads to better-behaved and docile animals. Since the dogs are also vaccinated, they make safer pets and instances of rabies also reduce.

As an added incentive, the goodie bags for all participants include premium products from Natural Bath & Body.


Want to support the cause but don’t want to run? You can donate here.

Anything Else?

Remember to carry water. Also, do carry cash to purchase baked goodies and more at the venue.
