Run with us on two legs to help those with four

04/05/2017

Last year, 60 dedicated supporters ran Australia’s largest fun run for World Animal Protection. This year could be your turn to run to help animals in need around the world.

In 2016, the World Animal Protection team raised an incredible total of $25,000 – a fantastic achievement to help end the needless suffering of animals around the world.

On Sunday 13 August, tens of thousands will take part in the annual City2Surf fun run from Sydney’s CBD to the surf and sand of Bondi Beach.

Amongst them will be World Animal Protection, with a team of supporters running the 14km course to raise money for vulnerable animals. And you could be one of them.

Be a hero for animals

In 2016, the World Animal Protection team raised an incredible total of $25,000 – a fantastic achievement to help end the needless suffering of animals around the world. Whether they were racing to beat the clock or bringing up the rear at a more leisurely speed, they were all there for the animals, and the money they worked hard to raise went towards those in the most urgent need of our help.

This year, we are setting our sights higher – with a goal to raise $30,000 for animals. And we need animal lovers like you to join the team to run the 14km course for animals on Sunday 13 August, and help us reach this goal.

Take a look at the scenes from the end of last year’s run, and hear from some of our fundraisers on why they chose to run for World Animal Protection.

Once that’s done, it’s time to lace up your running shoes and get training. The City2Surf starts from Hyde Park through Rose Bay, up “Heartbreak Hill” and down the hill overlooking the ocean to the finish line at Bondi. And you’ll have a team of likeminded animal protectors there to cheer you on when you cross it!
