DESPITE horrendous downpours fundraisers ran through the streets of Mold to raise cash for an animal rescue centre.
It is hoped that money raised by runners who took part in 3k and 10k races will be used to refurbish dog kennels at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR) in Trelogan.
The Run4Rescue has been hailed a ‘great success’ by rescue centre staff and volunteers who hope to make it an annual event.
NCAR public relations officer Nicky Owen said: “We were delighted with the turnout and great support for the event on Sunday. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the day, it’s just such a shame about the weather.
“It was a really great success for North Clwyd Animal Rescue and lots of much needed funds were raised through entries to the race and individual sponsorship from the runners.”
NCAR would like to thank everyone who helped plan the event; volunteers, staff and supporters who helped on the day; Tri & Enter for their expertise and equipment; and the St John’s Ambulance for their presence during the race.
Nicky added: “We want to thank everyone who was involved in making this such a fab day – especially all the runners and everyone who sponsored them to take part in the run.”
There are currently more than 100 dogs, 60 cats and 15 rabbits at NCAR who are looking for homes.
On May 13 NCAR is holding a sponsored dog walk at Talacre beach.
