I am happy to report, on behalf of the Zoological Society, that our 1st Annual Polar Run was a success! We had a great turnout with 150 runners and walkers joining us for the early morning family fun run. Thanks to Kramp Chiropractic for providing the runners with snacks.
The Zoological Society of Manitoba was also able to announce that it has reached it’s first Ice Cap thanks in part due to the great run turnout. What is an Ice Cap? We have now raised our first $10,000 in support of the Polar Bear Conservation Fund in Tribute to Debby.
But we’re certainly not stopping here – plans are underway for our Run Wild in May, our Zoo Brew Social in June, a super special September promotion and our Boo at the Zoo event in October. Proceeds from all of these events will be directed to the PBC Fund. If you would like to make a seperate donation to the fund to help us reach our goal of 25 Ice Caps in 2009, please visit http://www.zoosociety.com/fundraising_information.asp
