Mike runs the Yorkshire Marathon for Cloth Cat

a cat running with marathon runners in the yorkshire marathon

Mike has been purr-suaded to get all cathletic and get his running paws out to raise some money for Cloth Cat. Ok, I'll try and stop the puns but it's all
paws-itive stuff and will help the charity continue to deliver vital services and activities through meow-sic (sorry!) to those who really need it. It's a full 26.2 mile marathon which taking place on Sunday 11th October. It follows a route around the historic City of York and a series of villages to the north-east before winding it's way back. Mike's currently got a dodgy knee and is receiving treatment for it and the physio's remit is to get him through the race in one piece so lots of sympathy is needed but he wants to raise as much money as possible to help the project so please help if you can.
