Just when we thought our supporters couldn’t dream up more creative ways to raise funds in support of animals and the work we do at the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, here’s a runner who will be attempting to break a Guinness World record while running in a chicken costume in the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon.
In the words of Ross "The Rooster" Dold:
“If you don’t know yet, I am aiming to break an existing Official Guinness World Record at the Cape Town Marathon on 16 October.”
The title I am eyeing is “The Fastest Marathon Dressed as a Rooster”.
While doing so, I am raising awareness and funds for the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.
They do amazing work for both domestic animals and mountain wildlife, and are a team close to my heart.
Remember – Any donation to SPCA gets you an entry.
