5K May

This May, LAA is one of many UK charities that are taking part in the 5K May, a challenge that can be completed anywhere, anytime and with anyone! It's all about getting out, feeling good and helping good causes along the way. 

The month-long fundraising initiative, which went viral last year, was started by Run for Heroes in response to the pandemic. Now, it is available to all charities that are registered with Just Giving. Participants don't have to be athletes to take part, people of all fitness levels can get involved. So, why not improve your fitness and join 'Team LAA'?   

Taking part is really easy. All you have to do is: 

  • Run, walk, wheel, swim 5K for Leicester Animal Aid at a time that suits you and in a place that suits you (as long as you're safe, of course.) If you have other ideas of how you'd like to complete the 5K we'd love to hear them!
  • Pop £5 (or another amount if you prefer) into the donation box here
  • Challenge 5 of your friends to do the same - you can do this by email, by phone, by social media or any other way you can think of!

When you make your donation, Just Giving will email you to congratulate you and provide you with a link that can be passed on to others. 

If you don't fancy taking part but would like to help, you could always 'match' another's efforts by making a donation.

More information about Run for Heroes is available here. You can sign up for the event through Help for Heros if you would like reminders but this isn't necessary - you may prefer to just grab your shoes and go!
