5th ANNUAL MOVE YOUR PAWS FOR THE POLAR BEAR CAUSE - 1K & 5K WALK/RUN

Description

Saturday, February 24, 2018 Registration opens at 8:15am - Front Entrance Bridge 5K Run 9am – Front Entrance Courtyard 1K Run 9:30am – Front Entrance Courtyard Polar bears are one of the animals most threatened by global warming. They depend entirely on sea ice as a platform from which to hunt seals. Reduction of the total ice cover in the Arctic is a serious concern globally. When the ice does not form or forms too late in the season many polar bears starve. In Hudson Bay, scientists have found the main cause of death for cubs to be either lack of food or lack of fat on nursing mothers. Exploitation of minerals and fossil fuels in the Arctic pose a continuous threat. Of the oil and natural gas deposits globally, 20% are located in the Arctic. As the ice cap recedes these become more accessible. Countries are competing which each other in claiming ownership of Arctic and its resources. This can only result in further and more drastic impact on polar bear habitat. The annual Move Your Paws event proceeds supports the Toronto Zoo’s polar bear family as well as polar bears in the wild. So why not bundle up and bring the whole family for a day of outdoor fun, fitness and fundraising. We encourage all registrants to invite their friends, family and colleagues to support with pledges to support the zoo’s important conservation, education and research programs. For online entry, pledge forms and further information and start times *Please note registration includes admission for the day, non-transferable. Parking is an additional fee ($12). Each registrant receives one complimentary hot beverage and one complimentary hot soup. https://raceroster.com/events/2018/15318/move-your-paws-for-the-polar-bear-cause-5k-1k-runwalk-2018
