Our fourth event of 2018 is celebrating one of the coolest monarchs in history...Her Royal Highness Elizabeth the 10th! She's the bloody queen, Mate...basically, she rules! All participants will get this amazing 3" medal, custom satin ribbon (featuring star whales!), and the always popular custom digital bib.
“...The world must know that we all depend on the beast below.” Seriously...what other charity could we select? It HAD to be whales!! We are honored to announce that our charity partner for the Liz 10k is Oceans Initiative! Oceans Initiative is a team of scientists on a mission to protect marine wildlife. They specialize in science at the interface of math and magic to help us understand both the obvious and hidden impacts humans are having on the ocean, and to find creative solutions. They use their scientific superpowers for good, because they believe that "You're not gonna make the world any better by shouting at it!" With the help of WRC, Oceans Initiative is going to do some awesome science to make a real difference in the lives of whales. AND thanks to a matching donation from a foundation in California, every dollar we raise will be DOUBLED! Learn more at http://oceansinitiative.org/
And don’t forget to get your event shirt! Anyone can get a "Save the Whales" shirt...but this is the first ever "Save the Star Whale" shirt!! All proceeds will go to Oceans Initiative. Get your shirt here: https://www.customink.com/fundraising/liz-10k
The suggested run date for this event is Saturday, July 7th...Jon Pertwee's birthday! Remember, this is just a fun suggestion. You are welcome to complete your 10k whenever you want! All medals will be mailed the week after registration closes.
