Serena Queeney, who is not far short of 70, walked continuously for 120 miles around Brighton to help raise money for non-profit charity K-9 Angels.
The 67-year-old was helped along by locals as she walked for 48 hours straight, not even stopping to sleep. She was fuelled with vegan sausage rolls and was inspired by the generosity of the homeless, who showed their support by donating what they could.
Serena said, “After rescuing my little dog Frankie, who means the world to me, I wanted to help dogs in anyway that I can. I’m a keen walker but I’ve never walked 120 miles continuously before. I chose to walk in Brighton as I know it’s a vegan & dog loving community. I walked in mile loops around Grand Junction Road and past Habitat where my good friend Judy who’s 84 years old manned the stand keeping track of the laps. We may be grans but nothing will stop us helping our four legged best friends!”
This is the furthest Serena had ever walked, the rain and wind by the sea front was challenging and the pain in her feet forced her to limp for the last 20 miles. But, Serena kept her beloved dog in mind as well as the dogs she would be helping with her fundraising challenge.
Serena’s walk proved that at no matter what age you are, you can still go for exciting achievements in your life and make a huge difference to others. Serena and the K-9 Angels would really appreciate your support and any donations to help K-9 Angels carry on helping dogs in desperate need. They send food, shelter & medical help to help dogs in appalling conditions.
