Murray’s Guide Dogs Run story

Murray took part in the 2023 Guide Dogs Run in Glasgow, running with his father Stewart as his guide. Not only did Murray and Stewart cross the finish line first, but they were also our top fundraisers!

Guide Dogs are great, they really helped me improve my independence. It was good to give something back by doing the Guide Dog Run. I really enjoyed the run and the guide dog demonstration was really interesting.
