Rocky is our first dog ambassador dedicated to raising awareness and funds for
The Give A Duck Foundation!
Rocky is an Australian Shepherd and is 3 years old. His owner Natalie decided to set a challenge for Rocky in aid of Give A Duck during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
On 23 September, Rocky completed a sunrise walk with Natalie in Grasmere, Cumbria and updates were shared via his very own Instagram account @theyorkshireaussie
Natalie said: “Seeing how Chemo Duck helps children undergoing cancer treatments by bringing some form of comfort, normalisation and understanding of procedures made us want to help however we could. We decided on a 10 mile sunrise hike hoping to raise some money and also awareness of Give A Duck. Both Rocky & Chemo Duck were on their best behaviour on the walk and were in their element surrounded by fields, streams and waterfalls. We look forward to more fundraising in future!”
