The Penny Marathon provides both a voice to stray, abandoned, neglected and abused companion animals (cats and dogs) and support to the people and groups that fight to save their lives. The money raised through donations and sales is primarily used for various stages of the rescue–rehome process, such as medical emergencies, boarding, food and bedding, spay and neutering, vaccinations, travel and other essential costs.
Penny Marathon was founded in Greece by two Greek-Australians, sisters Ellie and Pep and you can read the full story on the Penny Marathon website.
How did I find out about Penny Marathon? It all started whilst I was on a Sunday morning walk at Sydney Park with the #3dogkateers. I first noticed a very striking dog, who it turned out is Ajax (second from the left in the pic above!) and as I looked up to speak with his family, I met Ellie and Pep and a great friendship was formed. I am the official photographer for the Sydney Penny Marathon which is held in mid-July each year.
