“I have always been an animal lover and I am a huge believer in what the ASPCA does to help make a difference for animals in need.” – Miley Cyrus
On July 25, 2008, the cross-country fundraising event Bolt Across America kicked off in New York City. The event, promoting Disney’s newest animated feature film Bolt, was held in conjunction with the ASPCA to raise funds and awareness for shelter animals across the United States. Disney Channel star Miley Cyrus, who plays the character Penny in the film, was on hand to kick off the event, which featured four people in giant hamster wheel-like contraptions to roll across the country to raise funds.
