We're raising funds to assist Friends of Animals' Marine Animal Rescue(MAR) team help save approximately 400 or more whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions and sea birds each year in Los Angeles County. These marine animals are often harmed because of the fish trade -- entangled in gill netting, ropes or injured by hooks. MAR has a 24-hour hotline for marine animal rescues and operates every day of the year.
The goal is to raise $1,000 to expand the rescues, and help pay for needed equipment.
The race is on June 1st, along a portion of scenic, ocean-side Dallas Rd in Victoria, BC, where many marine animals are often visible! It's a 5km (3 mile) individual effort, against the clock. Members of the OrganicAthlete Victoria team are hoping to raise $1000, so your contribution of $5, $25 or more is greatly appreciated!
