The Will to Help….
I have been working at the Center for Great Apes for over a year and a half. It is an amazing organization to work for and be a part of. I work with an wonderful group of people, all dedicated to helping improve the lives of these apes. Kurt and I decided to dedicate our next race, the Key Largo Bridge Run on November 8th to helping the apes even more. Our close friends Lisa and George will be running and fundraising with us in honor of Lisa’s 40th birthday.
The Center for Great Apes needs to expand, our chimpanzee groups need more space and open habitats, and we need to build additional orangutan habitats for future apes who will be retired here. Your donation could make all the difference for these apes’ lives. Follow us on our Facebook pages for our fundraising goals and what we’ll do when we reach each goal.

The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or from the exotic pet trade. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care.
