In 2017, Pet Pals TV viewers were touched by the amazing story of ‘Finding Gobi’.
When extreme ultra marathon runner , Dion Leonard, took to his 155 mile race in the Gobi desert, little did he know he would be befriended by a little stray desert dog, who he would later go on an incredible journey with. The story was covered in media all over the planet, followed by the release of Dion’s international best-selling book ‘Finding Gobi’ in 2017.
The pair have since become global stars, traveling and telling their inspiring story to all generations and becoming strong advocates for animal rescue.
Dion has organized a ‘Virtual Jog with Gobi’ – a 5k run or walk on Saturday 30 May, that the public can do wherever they live in a safe and socially distant manner. Dion and Gobi will be joined on the day by Dion’s wife, Lucja Leonard, who is also an accomplished ultra-marathon runner and passionate animal welfare advocate.
Pet Pals TV reporter Caroline Thau caught up with Dion and Gobi via Skype - and will soon bring viewers a complete update on how life has changed since the 2017 best-selling book. Here's a tease- there's a movie in the works!
