The Race Against Extinction is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization empowering ordinary individuals to do extraordinary things to preserve our natural world for future generations.  Our mission is to create awareness for the need to protect our planet’s biodiversity and help raise money for established international conservation organizations while hopefully having some fun doing so! 

The Race Against Extinction was formed in 2008 to help empower ordinary individuals with the means by which to help preserve the natural world for future generations. From its humble beginnings as an Earth Day 5K race on the banks of the Charles River in Boston (consisting of eight participants) to its worldwide Earth Activity Relay Challenge of 2019, the Race Against Extinction team has helped raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and awareness for fellow conservation organizations through various events through the years.
