BENEFITING: PROJECT A W A R E FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: PROJECT A W A R E FOUNDATION
Anyone who has met me immediately knows about my love of Sharks. My desire to protect sharks and educate people about them is probably the only thing that overcomes my general dislike of running and has made me join Project Aware's Team to run the 2017 NYC Marathon this November.
The more I interact and enjoy encounters with these amazing animals, the more it breaks my heart how they are being systematically driven to extinction through a myriad of problems like shark finning, fishing, bycatch, and general ocean pollution. The only hope for these amazing animals is to educate people and raise general awareness of their importance for healthy oceanic ecosystems.
Project Aware does an incredible job toward this end and also works hard to try and legislate suitable fishing limits, and protection policies through treaties like CITES. I am proud to support their efforts.
Please help me meet my goal to support Project Aware!!
