Did you ever wonder why I am so hairy? Did you know that much of my DNA is shared with the gorilla? And for that reason, among many others, I want to protect my jungle cousins. We are at a crossroads as human encroachment into gorilla habitat is threatening their very existence. In 2013 I ran in the Denver Gorilla Run. We broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest assembly of people in gorilla costumes. However it was a bittersweet triumph because we realized that the number of costumed people exceeded the actual estimate of mountain gorillas living in the wild. I will be racing in the Denver Gorilla Run again this year and want to make my participation a fundraiser to help the imperiled gorilla. Your generous donation will be so appreciated.
