The Two Oceans Marathon can be gruelling, but when you do it for a cause, it can be easier to push through, the SPCA team are taking it on to help animals.
Cape Town, South Africa (29 January 2020) – The Cape of Good Hope SPCA will be taking on the Two Oceans Marathon for the 9th time this year. They do it every year to raise much-needed funds for their animals.
The animal organisation invites fellow runners to join their racing team each year for both the half and ultra-marathons. Each runner taking part in either the 21km half marathon or the 56km ultra-marathon – will raise much-needed funds with every step they take.
“This year our runners have generously committed to raising a minimum of R3000 (half) and R3 500 (Ultra) which will go towards our Run2Heal campaign – every cent raised will directly impact the CoGH SPCA Animal Hospital and its critically injured/ill patients.”
The Cape of Good Hope SPCA’s Animal Clinic admitted over 9,196 animals for treatment in one year and sterilised more than 6,500 animals in an effort to drastically reduce the high number of unwanted litters and associated cruelty.
Their operational costs are over R9 million per year, so every cent raised will make a difference.
“The SPCA hospital costs well over R9 million per year to operate and we lose +-R400 on every admission in order to supplement those who cannot afford the full treatment.”
