Run for Rhinos

By | January 31st, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|

We are excited for our 3rd annual Run for Rhinos! We will be back at the Philadelphia Zoo on June 15th for our 5K run / 1 mile walk to save a species!

You can register at https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/Philadelphia/RunforRhinos. Get your family and friends together and form a team (email us at parcasavesrhinos@gmail.com for a discount code for 5 or more in your group)! Register by May 20th to ensure you get a run T-shirt. Water and snacks will be available after the run. Medals will be awarded to overall male and female finishers as well as the top 3 finishers in each age bracket.

Zoo admission is included for the day. Spectators can join you by purchasing a reduced-price ticket the day of the race ($18). Zoo members cannot use their membership for admission, but can use their parking benefit.

Last year hundreds of folks came out to say hi to the zoo’s resident white rhino, Tony, as they ran and walked to raise money for these iconic animals. We hope you will join us!

Happy New Year to our supporters! We are quite pleased to share with you that 2018 was our best year yet – we had our most successful fundraising year and funded the move of a second rhino. Our goals for 2019 are exciting – we look forward to helping keep the translocated rhinos safe and supporting the care of orphaned babies.
