Hi everyone! My name is Polly Bolland and I cannot wait to run the Chicago Marathon on behalf of Lincoln Park Zoo. I am currently the Donor Relations Assistant at the zoo, so it was no question where my fundraising efforts should go.

I moved to Chicago in 2011, right after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with degrees in Environmental Studies and History. To me, Lincoln Park Zoo is the epitome of my studies. Rich in history, as it’s the oldest free zoo in the country* and of course environmentalism, as it provides a connection to our natural world, Lincoln Park Zoo is a unique institution that stands as a testament to time and the development of conservation efforts around the world.

I’m running the marathon in Chicago because I love this city and I love running, and to be honest, I couldn’t think of a good enough reason not to! Through this fundraising process, I hope to spread this love to those around me and exceed my fundraising expectations. Thank you SO much for considering the LPZoo 26.2 team in your generosity. ANY gift amount is welcome and much appreciated!
