This year's 5K run/walk is dedicated to saving some of the biggest of the big animals: elephants. There will be two start times: one for runners at 8am, and a second for the Family Fun Run/Walk at 8:45am. All adults and senior registrants must also raise at least $30 before the run in order to participate on April 27. The minimum fundraising requirement is waived for children. Included: complimentary Bronx Zoo admission for the entire day, and a commemorative WCS Run for the Wild T-shirt. Last year's run sold out early; register ASAP.
