Cape Town (South Africa) – The organisers of the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN are excited to welcome the Cape Of Good Hope SPCA as an event charity for 2016.
According to Sue Ullyett, Event Manager FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN, a recent Facebook poll concluded that followers would like the event to support children and animals. “With Die Burger Kersfonds already a charity of ours, we jumped at the opportunity to adopt an animal charity as well. We approached various organisations in Cape Town with the SPCA coming out tops as they work tirelessly to help animals. We are proud to welcome them as our official charity for 2016 and look forward to working closely together with them.”
“Through FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN’s support we can continue to speak for, protect and care for all animals well into the future,” says Wanika Davids, Public Relations Officer of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA. “The Cape Of Good Hope SPCA is the oldest and largest animal welfare organisation in the Cape. The partnership will help us to educate more people about the rights of animals, while raising awareness of the fact that helping animals can be as easy as going for a run.”
Look out for the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN team at the Wiggle Waggle Walkathon in Firgrove Way, Tokai on Sunday, 15 November 2015 in support of the Cape Of Good Hope SPCA.
