The SPCA in Mutare, Zimbabwe, is struggling to look after animals left in its care and needs funds to help with feeding, care, immunisation and so on.
They organise and run an annual event called the "Blue Cross" to raise funds, where participants walk or ride some 500 kms over 8 days, where each person obtains sponsors to contribute to the SPCA. In case you are wondering how anyone walks 500 kms, the answer is that there are teams of 6 who do the distance in relays!
This is an amazing event and the cause is well worth supporting.
Have a look at the event web site - it's the best of rural Zimbabwe with the pleasure of the company of like minded people.
