Let’s get on the move to protect the world’s animals!
It’s that time of year to get off the couch, pull on your running shoes and head out into the winter sunshine for a good cause. Whether you’re a Sunday stroller, a fun runner or mad for marathons, you can raise vital funds for World Animal Protection by joining an organised fun run in your area.
As well as enjoying the buzz of a big race you’ll be helping protect animals all over the world from cruelty. The amount you raise will go directly towards protecting animals from needless suffering and bringing positive change to communities far and wide. We think that’s worth a medal alone.
And to show our appreciation for your support for animals in need, we’ll give everyone who raises over $300 a free World Animal Protection t-shirt. If you raise over $500 we’ll send you a World Animal Protection goody bag as well, full of kindly donated goodies!
Here’s how to get started:
