About the Challenge:
The Cheetah Fit Challenge 2021 is a way of keeping you fit while raising awareness and funds to keep cheetahs under our care in Namibia healthy and fit and, when possible, to re-wild them.
About the Cheetahs:
At any given time at Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia, there are 35-40 cheetahs in residence that came to the centre injured or as orphans mostly due to human-wildlife conflict. Through a variety of programs, CCF cares for these cheetahs and prepares as many as possible to be returned to the wild. Since 2013, 30 cheetahs have been re-wilded.
Cheetahs are regularly given the opportunity to run short distances as they would normally do in the wild. It costs about $5,000 per year for veterinary care and nutrition for each cheetah. This is why we need your help!
Join the Challenge:
Help us raise awareness and funds to keep the cheetah conservation programs strong, and ensure that the cheetah thrive. This year’s goal is $2,500 which will be matched by a generous sponsor for a total of $5,000 to be transferred to CCF Namibia to care for one cheetah.
