Walk for Wolves is Wolf Park's largest annual fundraiser supporting our 47 year legacy of conservation, education, and research. This year we are adding a new feature of a 'Virtual 5K'. Our Virtual 5K means anyone can participate from anywhere in the world with your personal fundraiser(s) and 5K! We will still have our usual event at the park (see Party Info), but you will now have the opportunity to fundraise on your own and complete the 5K in your location of choice!
This event will be live until June 1st at 7pm EST.
We encourage you to explore the options below to make your Virtual 5K experience unique, win prizes, and help your personal fundraiser be a success. We welcome you to bike, swim, run, skateboard, ski, play, hike, and more through your 5K. We want this to be fun, so do not feel restricted to only walking.
To register, click the 'REGISTER' button above and you will be directed to our online store. Follow the instructions there. Once you are registered, you may begin collecting donations. To collect donations, direct donors to the 'DONATE' button above, taking them to our online store. If donors do not leave your full name or team name in the comments, you will not receive credit towards your overall total.
Review the rules to the right for your Virtual 5K.
Registration starts at $25.
The first 200 people to register will receive a Wolf Park Walk for Wolves Race Medal.
You may work in teams, but the prizes are set at a dollar amount per person. For example, if you raise $1000, only one person from your team may claim the wolf with photo session visit.
Complete your 5K by 7pm EST on Saturday, June 1st.
You must post your time on our Facebook Group Page (link below). If you do not have Facebook, you may submit your time in person at the party or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
After posting your time, prizes will be mailed out before the end of June. Medals can also be picked up at the party, otherwise will be mailed.
We do not need picture proof of your posted time as we are going off the honor system, but photos are appreciated because we love our fans.
Funds raised will support Wolf Park
