We will always run for galgos.
Back in 2016, the WRC ran its first event for a cause that perfectly matched our “laugh hard, run fast, be kind” identity: the plight of the Spanish Greyhound, or “Galgo”. Galgos remain among the world’s most abused animals with an estimated 100,000 killed or abandoned in Spain every year. Capable of amazing speed and grace, they’ve been bred as tools for sport and hunting but never given the dignity of proper care, a home, or a family.
We’ve since vowed to dedicate one event every year to our favorite Galgo…so it warms our hearts to tell the world that our charity partner for the next Whovian Running Club event is Daphne Legacy Tour!
DLT facilitates all aspects of the transportation of Galgos from Spain to adoptive, loving homes in the United States. While the breed remains unfamiliar to most Americans looking to adopt dogs, the creation of new Galgo families in the U.S. increases the awareness of their plight, and creates more forever homes for them in the future.
Our support of DLT will continue to help more of these gentle animals come home, where they can be loved and cherished.
Come back at 12pm Eastern tomorrow for the unveiling of our fifth event of 2021, and get ready to run once again for Daphne Legacy Tour!
