I've been running this race since it's inception. Growing up in Hawaii I got to see dolphins in the wild all the time, but after returning to the mainland and living in the desert for 13 years I am embarrassed to say I did spend some time at Sea World. I always felt weird about it, but not until "The Cove" did I fully grasp the gravity of the situation, and have been a crusader ever since. None of these magnificent, intelligent creatures belongs in captivity. EMPTY THE TANKS. So, I am running and raising money for Rick O'Barry and his team to continue their important work.
