EVERYTHING MUST GO!
THE EXTRA MILE ONLINE AUCTION
THE EXTRA MILE VIRTUAL AUCTION
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL AUCTION?
Similar to a live auction, participants get the awesome opportunity to bid on amazing sponsored prizes donated to
The Extra Mile Virtual Run fundraiser.
As with our Virtual Run, proceeds from the Virtual Auction benefits More Community Foundation and Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Wild Dog Project.
Although we cannot celebrate the end of the Virtual Run on Heritage Day with prizes and our annual auction in person, participants will be able to register for the auction from Wednesday, September 20th, to bid for amazing sponsored auction items.
Click on Bid Now button to register and follow the steps in order to be able to bid. Every confirmed bid will be distributed to bidders for consideration to increase bids. Before bids close on the final day, registered bidders will receive confirmation of the highest bids per item. Each item is identified with a description and starting bid, plus will be updated while bidding is taking place.
Payments by registered bidders of confirmed highest bids will become due on final day. Payments are to be made via EFT by Thursday, 5th of October to payment details sent via email.
Please note the auction will close on the 30th of September 2023.
Please note courier fees for items will be at your own cost.
Because our auction is virtual, everyone can get involved from anywhere in the world and for up to ten (10) days.
It’s time to go the extra mile
This year, our annual run fundraiser looks a little different… We’re taking it off the beaten track and into the virtual space, making it possible for you to go The Extra Mile (anywhere you are!) for our communities and conservation.

WILD DOG PROJECT, ENDANGERED WILD LIFE TRUST
The African wild dog is one of Africa’s ‘Magnificent Seven’ species but also one of its most endangered. The largest population survives in southern Africa where it isn’t in fact very ‘large’ at all, with about 3 000 individuals under threat from habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict.
South Africa’s largest and most viable population of 250 dogs in 22 packs can be found in the Kruger National Park, where the Endangered Wildlife Trust has established its Wild Dog Project.
The project aims to increase the range, number and status of these animals by securing and expanding their habitats, finding solutions for co-existence with human communities, and supporting legislation to protect them. This takes extraordinary efforts and resources, and the EWT is in great need of our help to help our African wild dogs.
