The Fast & the Fierce 5K - Smithsonian National Zoo
ll runners have the opportunity to fundraise, which supports Smithsonian scientists working to collect gut microbe samples from wild black rhinos in South Africa. With so few rhinos left in the world, the survival of each is critically important. In addition to helping rhinos, race fundraising also supports other 2019 Conservation Nation projects.*
Don’t want to run? You can still sign up as a fundraiser and help save rhinos from the comfort of your own couch!
Registration closes at noon on Friday, Sept. 13.
*Registration fees support the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's mission. Additional fundraising directly supports conservation projects in the wild.
