Surrey Cat Walk
Help raise $10,000 for cats and kittens in need!
Join us for our second annual Surrey Cat Walk: Strut Your Stuff! on Saturday, June 22 at Surrey Bend Regional Park.
The walk is 5 km, with a 2 km option for those who would like to do a shorter walk.
Registration begins at 11 am, with the walk starting at 12 pm and lunch afterwards.
Goodies! Food! Prizes! Vendors!
At the walk, participants will receive a light lunch and a swag bag with goodies and a prize draw
ticket. And there will be some great vendors!
Step 1. Register
The registration fee is $20 if you register before or on June 1. If you register after June 1, the fee is $25. Kids under 12 years old are free.
Step 2. Collect Pledges
Ask your friends, family, co-workers, neighbours, your vet, and others to support you in walking for Surrey cats and kittens.
You can collect donations in two ways:
Set up your own CanadaHelps fundraising page online. It can be hard to ask for money in person, but an online giving page makes it simple for your friends and family to support you. Donors will automatically receive a tax receipt through CanadaHelps. If you need help to set up a page, read
How to Set Up a CanadaHelps Fundraising Page.
Print out a Pledge Form and collect donations in person. Hand in your completed form and pledges to us at the walk. We can issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more, so if your sponsors would like a tax receipt, please ensure all their information is filled out on the form.
We have put together some Fundraising Tips to get you started.
Step 3. Walk and Celebrate!
Bring your pledge forms and donations to the walk – rain or shine, but hopefully shine! You’ll meet our dedicated volunteers and other people like yourself who care about helping cats and kittens in Surrey.

The park has free parking. Unfortunately, it is not easily accessible by public transit, so we recommend you carpool with friends. Download driving directions.
