Matching Shirts: Add a holographic Snail’s Pace shirt or a Snailed It shirt to your registration for an additional $20 ($18 for Club VS members). Charcoal gray shirts are 100% pre-shrunk cotton, available in adult sizes S-XXL:
About the Charity: The Environmental Defense Fund‘s mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends. Guided by science and economics, they find practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems. What distinguishes Environmental Defense Fund is the combination of what they protect and how they protect it.
The EDF works to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet. This has drawn them to areas that span the biosphere: climate, oceans, ecosystems and health. Since these topics are intertwined, their solutions take a multidisciplinary approach. They work in concert with other organizations — as well as with business, government and communities — and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund. For more information or to make a direct contribution, please visit EDF.org.
