Roison O’connor, a senior pharmacist from Ireland will be running a 50km marathon in the upcoming North Face 100 Asia Pacific Series on 4 October 2013 in Singapore. She has been living in Singapore for the past 2 ½ years, loves travelling and adventure sports. Apart from her extremely active lifestyle, she is a passionate animal lover and has taken time off to do some volunteering at our local animal shelters during her stay in Singapore.
Roison clearly enjoys her volunteering experiences as she recounts how heartwarming her first volunteering experience was. She got to know the dogs better and understand their different personalities. She has also previously run the Dublin marathon on behalf of Dublin SPCA 5 years ago. This time, Roison is completing her marathon on behalf of 3 local animal welfare organisations and HOPE Dog Rescue is one of them! She has made these organisations beneficiaries for her run. Funds raised will help pay our outstanding vet bills.
We (as well as our furry friends) fully support Roison in her upcoming marathon and hope that you do as well!
