Welcome to My 5K for Nature Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my page.
From a young age I have been fascinated with wildlife. Some of my favorite animals include Platypus, Screaming Hairy Armadillos, Alligators, Echidnas, Ring Tailed Lemurs and Giant African Land Snails. Unfortunately the variety of animals that live on this planet and their diverse habitats are at risk every day.
A good example of this is the Vaquita. Possibly the most endangered animal, the Vaquita is a marine mammal that inhabits the northern part of the Gulf of California in Mexico. Nets from illegal fishing operations inadvertently catch and drown the porpoises. Their are only 10 individuals left in the wild. WWF works to prevent extinction of these animals and many others.
I became a supporter of the World Wildlife Fund several years ago and I am asking you to do the same. June 1-7 my family and I will will be participating their 5K for Nature. We have committed to running a minimum of 3.5 miles and donating $5 each. I am inviting you to participate with us by committing to walk, run, hike or bike at least one mile in the first week of June, as well as donating to this page.
If we work together, we can take on anything. That is why every day, WWF works in unity with many people, partners, and institutions to achieve lasting conservation solutions. You can be part of those solutions. You can protect the very things that keep us alive: our forests, our oceans, our fresh water, our wildlife, our energy supply, our food supply.
Your donation of at least $5.00 will help make it possible to protect the future of nature. Your commitment to walk, hike, or jog will help make it possible to protect the future of YOU!
Thank you for taking the time to read this,
