June is upon us already! Summer approaches, the days get longer and the weather…stays the same. Nonetheless, Noah’s A.R.T. rescue dog Tyler has been spending his weekends getting out about, enjoying the outdoors, exploring the beautiful hills and moorland that surround Greater Manchester, and flexing his leg muscles. He even carries his own doggy rucksack.
However, all this hiking isn’t just for fun. Tyler is actually in training for something bigger. This September, he will be walking the Brenig Way, a 32-mile challenge walk through the North Wales mountains and valleys, to raise money for Noah’s A.R.T. Accompanying him will be Noah’s A.R.T. staff Tom and Catherine. The walk begins in the beautiful Dee Valley, snaking through woodlands and valleys, then climbing up along the Afon Clywedog to finally finish at LLyn Brenig reservoir.
Tyler (and Tom and Catherine) will be working hard all summer, and will keep you updated on their progress. Check back in regularly to hear updates from their training walks, and follow Tyler’s progress towards his big September challenge!
For now, here are some photos from this weekend’s walk. Tyler headed up out of Glossop onto Bleaklow, and investigated some WWII aircraft wrecks! Despite the rain, everyone enjoyed the stunning scenery. Safe to say, Tyler was well and truly tired out.
If you would like to sponsor Tyler’s walk, please head to our JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/aat. Anything you can give will be much appreciated, and will go towards caring for the Noah’s A.R.T. therapy animals and running our therapy sessions.
