Nine miles. One month. Roam free!

This September, help us give cats and kittens their life back by joining our Nine Mile Challenge.

Walk, cycle, run or swim nine miles during September. Even dust off those old roller-skates if you like!

You can spread the challenge out over the month or do it all in one go. However you choose to do it, your miles and the funds you raise will be vital in helping cats in need get back on their paws.

Registration is free and we’ll provide you with sponsorship forms, planners and all the support you need. Plus, everyone who fundraises gets a collectible Nine Mile Challenge pin-badge and certificate.

New for this year, you can buy your very own #CatChampions t-shirt to wear with pride while you take on your challenge!

Did you know..?

Last year's challenge raised £27,100: enough to pay for bedding and a safe place to sleep for almost 3,000 unwanted cats and kittens. With your help this year we can do even more.

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.


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

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.

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.

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
A microchip
Deworming and vaccination

Make sure you spread the word – share your fundraising page, put up your poster and event set up a text to donate code
