Ninth Life Foundation has teamed up with City2Surf, giving participants the opportunity to raise much needed funds for cats in need.

The Foundation is unique as it rescues and re-homes cats who are high care and in need of specific, dedicated support. Aged, abandoned, on death row, or with ailing owners unable to care for them, Ninth Life is committed to finding new homes that really fit the needs of each cat in its care, to ensure they can enjoy their next stage in life

As one of City2Surf’s partnering charities, participants will be able to fundraise for Ninth Life while they run, jog, or stroll the iconic 14km course from Sydney CBD to Bondi Beach.

Jules dos Santos, Ninth Life Foundation Chair, says the partnership is a very valuable opportunity that will make a great difference to cats in need.

“As the world’s largest fun run, it’s a significant event in Sydney’s sporting and charity calendar and a wonderful opportunity for runners and walkers to enjoy this community day while helping to support cats in their twilight years.

“Whether going solo or part of a team, we’re very grateful for all the support. It makes a huge difference to us in our ability to provide the service we do.”

Individuals who raise more than $60 for Ninth Life will receive an official Ninth Life t-shirt. Those who create a team of nine will be given Foundation shirts, fluffy tails, and ears to wear on the day to celebrate their involvement.
