Jess is running 21kms for Team SPCA

For those that know me well, you will know two things. Firstly that I am absolutely crazy about animals, and secondly that I am not naturally athletically talented. In 2017, I decided that I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone while making a difference. What better way to do this than signing up for Cape Town's Two Oceans Half Marathon and running for Cape of Good Hope's SPCA.

For those of you who don't know, for the past 143 years the SPCA has diligently carried out their mission to prevent cruelty to animals.Through every kilometer, every blister and every muscle cramp – I want to help this special unit of the SPCA to continue to care for and protect animals from cruelty – especially those exposed to the world of dog fighting.

All the funds you donate to my cause will go directly to supporting the Cape of Good Hope SPCA’s fight against animal cruelty. Help me smash my target and give back to the SPCA so they can continue their incredible work.
