BENEFITING: Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Aug 12, 2017
The aim is two raise $1,000 for Ric O'Berry and the Dolphin Project to raise awareness about dolphin captivity and the drive hunts of Taiji, Japan. Please donate and join our team.
The week of August 7th - no matter where you are around the world – run, walk, cycle, kyak or swim on behalf of dolphins! You can complete the virtual race any time during the week or spread out your mileage across several days.
Please donate, join our team (via this page), or tally up your milage at the end of the week and we'll make a donation on your behalf - the going rate will be $0.10 a mile. Last year participants raced 242 miles to raise awareness. Nick and I have the goal to each log over 242 miles to double the distance from last year.
In the month leading up to the start of the Taiji hunting season, we want the world to know what takes place in The Cove, as documented by the Oscar-award winning movie of the same name. Dolphin Project will once again be on the ground in Taiji during the entire hunting season, documenting and disseminating information as they continue their critical mission of ending dolphin captivity and the hunts that supply dolphins to aquariums and marine parks across the world.
