Evesham Editorial 4th Oct, 2023   0

THE TEAM at Dogs Trust Evesham are appealing to local dog lovers to join them in their ‘Sit and Stay’ fitness challenge to raise thousands of pounds for rescue dogs.

The Wall Sit Challenge, which runs throughout October, has three levels to choose from starting with the one-minute Beginner Beagle, the two-minute Advanced Akita and for Wall Sit experts the three- minute Pro Pointer.

Wall sitting is a popular strengthening exercise and involves people placing their back against a wall with their feet shoulder width apart and a little distance from the wall, then lowering their hips until their knees form right angles.

If you think you could ‘Sit and Stay’ to help transform the lives of rescue dogs, sign up via the Wall Sit Challenge Just Giving page at www.justgiving.com/campaign/dt-wall-sit-challenge or join the ‘Wall Sit Challenge 2023’ Facebook group, where you will find demonstration videos.

Everyone taking part will receive top tips to help them complete the challenge, a daily tracker and a pair of Dogs Trust shoelaces.
