You and your pooch are invited to the THIRD annual Paws on the Promenade - a dog walk fundraiser in support of the Mdzananda Animal Clinic, Khayelitsha.
On Sunday the 18th of February at 9:00am, join in the fun as pets and owners strut their stuff along the beautiful scenic route of the Sea Point promenade.
Starting at the Mouille Point light house (Cape Town), the route will extend to the Sea Point swimming pool and back – a total of five kilometers. Shorter turnaround points for old, tired and injured pets (or humans) will also be available.
To register for the event costs R40 per person and R40 per dog. You can pre-register at Quicket www.qkt.io/pawsonprom, by emailing email@example.com or by visiting Vondi’s Holistic Pet Food, 59 Regent Road, Sea Point. On day registration will start at 8:00am.
The first Walk in 2016
“In 2016 we hosted our first Paws on the Promenade which raised R12 000. Around 100 dogs and 150 owners joined us,” says Marcelle du Plessis, Fundraising and Communications Manager and event organizer. “We are very excited to host our second Paws on the Promenade and hope that many more pets and humans will be able to join us this year.”
The second walk in 2017
“Our 2017 Paws on the Promenade was a great success, we more than doubled our attendance and income from the previous year, with an attendance of 271 dogs and 368 humans. But on a budget of just R1050 we raised R24 000! We hope to raise even more funds with this year’s event,” says Marcelle du Plessis, Fundraising and Communications Manager and event organizer.
Who can join in the Third Charity Walk in 2018?
Everyone is invited:
- You and your four legged friends can join...
- Humans without four legged friends are very welcome too.
- A number of stray dogs up for adoption will be available to walk with you. You can book a stray pet to join you on this walk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big thanks to the Sponsors
“We would like to thank Vondi's Holistic Pet Nutrition who will be sponsoring 200 goodie bags for the first 200 dogs to arrive on the day, at the event,” says Marcelle du Plessis.
