SPCA Zimbabwe Blue Cross

Personal message

Animal sanctuaries all over Zimbabwe are desperately in need of support.  

The Mutare SPCA and Blue Cross convenors hold the annual BLUE CROSS 500km ULTRA DISTANCE EVENT ending in August to raise funds for all the SPCAs in Zimbabwe. It is an unparalleled challenge like no other, for a cause like no other.

Participants take part in a remote physical adventure, through the beautiful untravelled countryside, starting at Mahenye in the Save Riverbed and ending at Mount Nyangani, a distance of 500 km.

They ride (MTB), run, walk, relay, horse ride, or Enduro - from the lowest point in Zimbabwe to the highest. Every day is different and every day is beautiful.

Support participants by sponsoring them, or do the challenge yourself. Whatever you can donate will be much appreciated and help fund animals in need, in both towns and rural areas.

All funds raised will be used to help run SPCA branches as well as support outreach work into rural areas.
