City2Surf Guide Dogs Puppy Challenge


So waking up at the crack of dawn to go on a 14 km run on a cold August morning may not appeal to most people. Especially when the annoying beeping of your alarm goes off that morning.
But, once you get past that 'I'm awake' stage, participating in the annual City2Surf can actually be quite fun! I took part last year and while I have to admit I took the challenge on a whim and did absolutely no training and couldn't walk for about 2 days after the event, I found it really rewarding. The part I enjoyed the most was fundraising for a charity of your choice. Last year I raised over $150, which considering my lack of training was a huge ask of my friends and family.


Guide Dogs NSW and ACT have come up with a plan to raise up to $50 000 to recruit 50 new guide dog pups. The non-government funded charity has enlisted celebrities such as Kerri-Anne Kennerley, The Two Fat Tradies from The Block and Israel Folau from the GWS GIANTS AFL team to pep talk all of us to firstly take part in the City2Surf and secondly to choose Guide Dogs NSW and ACT as our charity to fundraise for, and when you look at the cute pups and know that they are going to give so much independence to a vision impaired person, the choice is easy.
