They're with us in the rain or sunshine, they never get grumpy and they always make us smile.

We wanted to dedicate a special post to our wee furry four legged friends !  


Baer worked hard keeping an eye on his Dad, Roger Talbot, to make sure that he completed his 26m cycle for SiMBA. When asked for his thoughts Baer said " My Dad (Roger) doesn't actually seem to do any work at all but I am very proud of him because he looks after me and I am his best friend. My role was vital to the success of the whole challenge and proves what a perfect partnership we have"

Haggis is the SiMBA mascot, a super cute wee Westie who, despite getting soaked on Sunday walked 26miles in a week in memory of his sister Faith. Haggis's wee posts on our 2.6 facebook page have kept us all going 💜

Kirsty Lee would normally be doing the Edinburgh half-marathon for SiMBA, so instead she's decided to run everyday for 26days in a row with her faithful companion Sulley 🐶

Marley has been running 2.6 miles a day with Charlie and Steven 🐶


Elaine Coltman and Marlene Johnson have danced / walked / and smiled for 26 miles and got to know Hamish their local Heelin Coo! 💜

If you have a four legged friend who's helped you through your 2.6 challenge then we'd love to hear from you. Post your pics on our facebook post below!

 and remember it's not too late to donate - we're only £130 away from £13,000!!!
