500km for greek animal rescue

Calliope Georgousi is raising money for Greek Animal Rescue (UK), ANIMAL ACTION GREECE and THE FRIENDS OF THE STRAYS OF GREECE

My story

I have recently completed a 500km cycle ride in the last eight days for #Festive500 Rapha campaign. I am now fundraising 500 Euros for each kilometre cycled to rescue Greek stray dogs I met on the way.

I have cycled more than 2500km across 12 European countries from Brighton, UK to Thessaloniki, Greece this summer. I have daily come across wild and stray dogs while en route from Chortiatis mountain of Thessaloniki, Scholari, Ofrinio, Kavala, Galini in Xanthi, Komotini and Alexandroupoli and from Patras to Athens. Some of them needed food, a caress and some aggressively chased my wheel. The situation is worse in Nothern Greece.

For this reason, I have decided to utilise this achievement for #Festive500 campaign to donate the funds raised by you to three animal welfare organisations that will rescue Greek dogs through primarily finding a home or neutering them to tackle the problem; since the national laws are hardly practised and citizens have to tolerate the situation in exchange for their public safety.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Greek Animal Rescue (UK), ANIMAL ACTION GREECE and THE FRIENDS OF THE STRAYS OF GREECE.
