Join the Glorious Gecko virtual race to support an organization dedicated to the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities. Register for a 5k, 10k, or half marathon distance and then run or walk whenever and wherever you want to earn this 5″, googly-eyed, iridescent gecko medal! The unique plating on this 3D medal makes it change colors as you look at it from different angles, so it may not look exactly like the one pictured here. The attached ribbon features a beautiful quote from Ghandi: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
About the Charity
Founded in 1947, Defenders of Wildlife is a major national conservation organization focused solely on wildlife and habitat conservation and the safeguarding of biodiversity. They believe in the inherent value of wildlife and the natural world, and this singular focus defines the organization’s important niche in the environmental and conservation community and serves as the anchor for their organizational values. Defenders works on the ground, in the courts, and on Capitol Hill to protect and restore imperiled wildlife across North America and around the world.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to Defenders of Wildlife. For more information about this charity or to make a direct contribution, please visit Defenders.org.
