BENEFITING: The Nature Conservancy
ORGANIZER: The Nature Conservancy
I will be running my first marathon this November to raise money for the Nature Conservancy. My interest in the environment primarily centers on climate change, clean energy/ energy efficiency, and sustainability. Since living in Manhattan (and being surrounded by lots of concrete!), the interest has expanded into a physical and emotional need to get outside and experience nature hands on. The Nature Conservancy focuses on both conservation and on pressing threats to our environment around the globe. Please join me in supporting this worthy cause.
Thank you for your support!
Since its founding in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has...
- Protected more than 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of rivers worldwide - and it operates more than 100 marine conservation projects globally.
- Worked in all 50 states and more than 30 countries - protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reeds, from Australia to Alaska to Zambia.
- Addressed threats to conservation involving climate change, fresh water, oceans, and conservation lands.
