Elle Macpherson was the special guest at an exclusive evening of drinks and dinner on Tuesday 26th March to help ‘The Dog Jogger’, otherwise known as Barry Karacostas, dog fitness trainer and free runner to London’s elite hounds, with his fundraising for the charity Right To Play.
Barry Karacostas will be embarking on a husky trek across the arctic next month in aid of global organization Right To Play that uses the transformative power of play – playing games and playing sport – to educate and empower children facing adversity.
Over 100 people including Elle Macpherson, David Gandy, members of the cast of Made in Chelsea and Right To Play Athlete Ambassadors and Olympians Chemmy Alcott, Alex Danson and Zoe Smith were in attendance to support ‘The Dog Jogger’ and wish him luck on his arctic challenge.
