Picart collaborates with the Cursa de Llebrers de Galgos112

The event, which has been a resounding success for a decade, has consolidated its position as one of the most eagerly awaited activities in and around the community of Sant Fruitós de Bages. La Cursa dels Llebrers de Galgos112 not only offers an opportunity for dog lovers to enjoy a day of outdoor sport, but also promotes solidarity and awareness of animal protection.

The day began at nine o’clock in the morning, with the mayor of Sant Fruitós de Bages, Joan Carles Batanés, giving the start to approximately forty participants in the canicross, divided into eight boxes. The 7.17-kilometre route took the participants along paths and tracks, passing through Sant Benet de Bages and returning to the starting point, El Bosquet. Subsequently, a total of 257 walkers, along with their dogs and some participants without pets, started out on the new route, which lasted an average of an hour and a half. After the physical activity, all participants recovered their energy with a breakfast based on sausage or vegan options. The active participation of Mayor Joan Carles Batanés in the event’s start shows the institutional and community support for this noble cause. The presence of Xavier Serrano, Sports Councillor of Sant Fruitós de Bages Town Council, at the prize-giving ceremony underlines the importance that the local authorities attach to sport and animal welfare.

The generosity of the collaborating companies, including Picart, has been fundamental to the continued success of the Cursa dels Llebrers de Galgos112. The raffle of products and services offered by these companies not only adds to the excitement of the event, but also contributes significantly to fundraising for Galgos112. Ultimately, the true focus of this event is the welfare of the galgos rescued by Galgos112. The dedication of this organisation to the protection and rehabilitation of these animals is an inspiration to all participants and supporters. Picart is proud to have contributed to this noble cause and hopes to continue to support similar initiatives in the future.

In summary, the tenth edition of the Cursa dels Llebrers de Galgos112 has been a testament to the transformative power of sport, solidarity and love for animals. As the event continues to grow and evolve, its positive impact on the community and the lives of rescued galgos will only strengthen with time.
