Virtual Walk/Run/Ride 4 Animal Rescue - SPCA Fundraiser

Sun Jul 4, 06:00 - Tue Sep 14, 15:00



Help us to raise R1 million ($70,000) for the Garden Route and Cape of Good Hope SPCA between now and 27 September 2021. Simply connect your exercise device, take yourself (and your dogs) for a walk, run, ride, or gym workout and see how you rank on our leaderboard.

NB: You must have an exercise devise (GPS watch, power meter or heart rate monitor) connected to a Strava account to participate.

How it Works:

After purchasing your ticket/donation, register a free account on, then go to the Clubs tab and search for Walk For Africa. If you are already a Strava user, join the Walk For Africa Club and then join the W4A Western Cape Walkathon Group Event. 

The Strava App on your phone makes it super easy to record exercise workouts by syncing your GPS watch, pedometer or heart rate monitor device. We've plotted the entire 800km Plett to Cape Town route map in the Club Event dashboard and your activity will be ranked to determine the leaders. When the virtual event closes on 27 September 2021, the top 10 leaderboard winners will be acknowledged.

About Walk For Africa and the SPCA is a member-driven non-profit collective of travel trade, media, conservation, and environmental members. We focus on projects that foster sustainable tourism for destinations, people, animals, and the planet.

Established in 1872, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is the founding society of the SPCA movement in South Africa and is the oldest animal welfare organisation in the country. The Garden Route SPCA was formed when the George and Mossel Bay branches joined forces to combat animal cruelty in the region.
