Wild Stampede 5k Run
|Saturday, September 29, 2012, 08:00am - 11:00am |
Help save wildlife! Put on your running shoes and join us for a fun 5k fundraiser!
The Utah Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK), in partnership with Utah’s Hogle Zoo, is proud to host our third annual “Wild Stampede- 5K Run and Walk for Wildlife” fundraiser on Saturday September 29th, 2012. Along with the 5k will be a Kids Dash for ages twelve and under. Sports Am L.L.C. will be timing the event.
AAZK is an organization of zoo keepers and volunteers dedicated to professional development and conservation projects.
100 % of proceeds raised from this event will directly benefit a national and a global wildlife conservation organization to be determined soon.
We hope you will join us at Utah’s Hogle Zoo where the fun and scenic 5k course begins at the Zoo’s east parking area, wraps up around Wasatch Boulevard and Michigan Ave, and then returns back to the Zoo. The Kids Dash is approximately 1 k. After the run you can enjoy food, music, awards and visit with a few of the Zoo’s animal ambassadors in the Zoo’s Events Pavilion. Strollers and wagons are welcome, but please leave pets, bikes, heelies, rollerblades and skateboards home.
Check-in 7 - 8 AM
Kids Dash starts: 8:30 AM, 5k starts: 9:30 AM.
Awards will start right after the run.
