On Sunday, 15 May there will be a Charity Walkathon in the War Memorial Park in Coventry. A circuit of the park is 1.75 miles, and I am intending to do the walk with my two Cavaliers Oliver and Aled, to raise money for Rupert's Fund, which funds MRI scans for older Cavaliers who have not been diagnosed with SM. The results of these scans are providing valuable and exciting information for the researchers working on the genetic basis of SM. I would love other Cavaliers and their owners to join me on the walk, so that we can enter a team. The entry fee is 5 per person (which covers costs and a donation to the organisers' chosen charity, the British Heart Foundation); everything we raise in sponsorship will go to Rupert's Fund. If you would like to join us on the walk, please email me with your name and address and put the 5 entry fee into my PayPal account (kate879@btinternet.com) and I will add your name to the entry form and send you a sponsorship form; if you need more information, email me or phone me on 024 7659 3694. If you aren't able to walk but would like to support Rupert's Fund in this way, I hope you will sponsor the walkers.

Kate, Oliver and Aled
