Three runners are roaring to go for tigers as they prepare for the 2017 London Marathon in April as part of TeamDSWF*. Matthew Levett, Jon Musker and Joe Moriarty are all running for TigerTime in the world’s biggest fundraising event.

If you can, please support these amazing men who are taking on the 26 mile challenge on April 23 to raise money to protect wild tigers.

Joe says: “Although I love all animals, the tiger is my favourite. To see what humans have done to this beautiful and magnificent animal is heart breaking. That’s why I feel so privileged to be able to run for TigerTime which works so tirelessly to fight for the tiger’s survival. I have never run the marathon before, so this will be a huge challenge for me!”

John says: “I am thrilled to be supporting tigers through a golden-bond place for the London Marathon. Last year I played the part of Shere Khan in a production of Jungle Rock (the Jungle Book set in the sixties with classic rock and roll hits). I still have the marvellous costume for Shere Khan which I will be wearing and am roaring to go on race day!”

Matthew says: “Wildlife conservation is something I hold dear to my heart. The damage to animal species and habitats is horrific and saving these is vital in my eyes. To raise awareness and funds by running for TigerTime will be amazing.”
