On October 12, 2014, I will be running the Chicago Marathon to raise funds for Chicago’s FREE zoo, Lincoln Park Zoo. I invite you to join me in supporting this incredible institution, which provides more than 3.5 million visitors a year with an unparalleled Chicago experience, all while continuing to be a leader of animal management and wildlife conservation all around the globe.
My favorite facts about Lincoln Park Zoo, and more proof that YOU should support us:
*It costs $63,000 per DAY to keep the zoo FREE and OPEN to the public 365 days a year (and yes, the zoo is free and open 365 days a year!)
*Lincoln Park Zoo is renowned as a leader in wildlife conservation around the world by heading up successful programs like the Serengeti Health Initiative, which vaccinates domesticated dogs in Tanzania in an effort to protect the population and local human communities and lion prides against rabies
*Lincoln Park Zoo provides educational opportunities and curriculum for all ages – at no cost
