Whovian Running Club’s inaugural event, run in September of 2016, and the beginning of the Galgos Series:
All proceeds from this event, and the entire Galgos Series, supported two incredible charities working in Spain to save the lives of Spanish Greyhounds…better known as Galgos. SOS GALGOS (oficial) and Galgos del Sol are the foremost organizations working to rescue and educate the Spanish public about these amazing animals. Bred as hunting and racing dogs, Galgos are a truly noble breed. However, tens of thousands of Galgos are either abandoned or brutally murdered every year in Spain once they reach the end of their “usefulness”. Galgos Del Sol and SOS Galgos are working to change attitudes and laws, educate the public, and rescue thousands of these beautiful creatures.
UPDATE: This event led to $21,443.56 in donation support to SOS Galgos and $21,443.56 in donation support to Galgos del Sol!
