Wildlife Conservation Society's Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo

Run for the Wild Bronx Zoo 2017

Cam's 5K Run to Save Flamingos


Hi Family and Friends,

The Bronx Zoo and the Wildlife Conservation Society are hosting a 5K run on April 29th to raise money to help save endangered animals. I am planning to run the 5K and I will try to run the entire 5K without stopping. I have never run a 5K before and I will train hard to run the whole distance. In order to help save animals, I am dedicating the next two months of my life to meeting my goal of running a 5K. All I am asking, is for you to donate a small amount of money to support the animals and me. Will you donate money to save endangered animals?

As you may know, I love birds, and I care about saving flamingos and all other birds, and I hope you do, too. The money I raise will help fund WCS’s critical work to save flamingos and other wildlife around the globe.

Today, animals are going extinct 10,000 times faster than ever before. African elephant populations have plummeted due to poaching to feed the ivory trade, and recent news from the field has often been bleak.

I want to help, which is why I’m running in the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on Saturday, April 29th. This will be my first 5K run, and I will be running with my mom as part of the team called "Cam's 5K Run To Save Flamingos". The 5k run supports WCS in establishing and helping to manage parks and reserves, safeguarding animals from poaching with active monitoring and patrolling, and inspiring communities to protect their local wildlife.

WCS has the reach and the expertise to make a difference, but the organization needs our help to make that protection a reality. That’s where you and I come in.

With your support, I hope to raise my target of $1,000. Even $10 would make a big difference.
