It's up to you! Decide if you want to do your nine miles all in one go, across the whole month or even every day.
How will my money help?
The money you raise will help thousands of cats and kittens have a chance of health and happiness.
£5 could pay for a blood test to help diagnose conditions like diabetes and leukaemia
£10 we could pay for 10 days' worth of specialist milk to hand-feed an orphaned kitten
£50 could provide five traumatised cats with bedding and a safe place to sleep
£100 could feed five cats in our care until they are ready to go their new home
£150 could provide a full health-check for a cat including blood tests, neutering, microchipping and inoculations
Is there a registration fee or minimum sponsorship?
No, the Nine Mile Challenge is free to take part in. But we need you to raise as much as you can so you can help us care for as many cats and kittens as possible.
Can I support my local branch or centre?
Absolutely! When you register you are able to choose any of our branches or centres to support and they will receive all the money you raise.
Any tips for raising sponsorship?
If five friends donate £1 a mile that’s enough to provide a cat in our care with:
Bedding and a safe place to sleep
Food until they are ready to go home
Deworming and vaccination
