BENEFITING: SAVE OUR WILD SALMON COALITION

EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012

THE STORY:

The Save Our Wild Salmon Coalition (SOS) has put together a humble team to run in the Portland Marathon:

Jennifer Trunkey  ---  Steve Hawley  ---   Jennifer King

These folks on while raising some dough and some awareness to save wild salmon and steelhead and the communities that depend on them! Your donation will help sustain our work in the courtroom, in Congress, and on the ground in communities throughout the Pacific Northwest and nationwide.

BONUS: Thank-you Gifts and Donor Raffle!

- The first 25 donors at the $60 level will receive a $30 gift card from Mountain Khakis!
- A $100 donation gets you a set of 6 awesome steel Klean Kanteen pints with SOS' 20th Anniversary logo.
- Each donor will be entered to win a $135 gift certificate to Patagonia Footwear (we have 2 of these to raffle off)

 

Will Steve Hawley break a world record?

Hawley will attempt the world's fastest marathon run in a business suit. A self-described “renewed runner after a few years riding the couch,” is the author of the recent book “Recovering a Lost River: Removing dams, Rewilding salmon, Revitalizing communities.” Recovering a Lost River delivers a powerful argument for why lower Snake River dam removal makes good scientific, economic, and environmental sense—and requires our urgent attention.  

“Running a marathon in a suit is only as ridiculous as the perils that Snake River salmon face,” said Hawley, “A deadly gauntlet of eight large dams, warming water in the reservoirs, invasive predators that benefit and thrive in a slower river, and maybe even a disorienting ride in a semi-truck to the mouth of the Columbia River.  Salmon that survive against these odds deserve a lot more than a listing in the Guinness Book of World records.  They deserve a river that runs more like an actual river.”

To break the record for fastest marathon in a suit, Steve Hawley will have to run the Portland Marathon in under 3 hours, 24 minutes, and 46 seconds.  Paul Buchanan at the Dublin Marathon in Ireland set that record in 2009.
