James Sowerby, a dedicated staff member who works for Dogs Trust Kenilworth, has helped raise funds for dogs he loves through cycling. Despite several knee and feet operations, the 32-year old set a 999km virtual route. Not only has cycling helped him recover from operations, but it helped the dogs by virtually cycling to 621 miles in the Canine Cycle Challenge which raised funds for his canine friends. By syncing his computer to his exercise bike and mapping out the route, he took in five Dogs Trust rehoming centres.
- James is a virtual cycler who starts at the Dogs Trust Kenilworth and virtually went to Newbury, Shoreham and Salisbury.
- James burnt about 19,000 calories during this challenge and completed the last 99 kilometers with no breaks.
- James did a great thing and raised a bunch of money that will go towards food, toys and treats for dogs.
“But despite the physical challenges it posed for him, the 32-year-old decided to take it several pushes of the pedals further – and set himself a 999km virtual route.”
