Race to Save the Ocean
Organized by: Jennifer Wilkins
EVENT DATE Nov 08, 2015
Team Adaptive San Francisco, family and friends are coming together to run another half marathon, 2 years later, helping to support an amazing charity Spiral Pacific.
Spiral Pacific is an independent trans-media project, whose content lives across multiple formats: print, television, video web assets and for scientific research purposes. The film is both unique and successful because the foundation is the spirit of collaboration for education. Footage is shared freely with scientists and stakeholders. Spiral Pacific explores five countries and common human-caused stressors that contribute to the downward spiral: overfishing, ocean acidification, and the plastic pollution problem that chokes the sea with synthetic debris. Success stories also abound. Change is spurred by students and educators. Groups pass progressive legislation based on conservation principles. Many species recover. Ultimately, Spiral Pacific illuminates our consumptive behavior, to foster the many small changes that yield big benefits.
90% of donations will go directly to Spiral Pacific for filming, production and post production costs:
10% of donations will be given to Human Dolphin foundation, a charity that has been around since the 1970s, and has expanded to include the health of our water planet as a whole, specifically the Pacific Ocean area.
