BENEFITING: LINCOLN PARK ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2016
United Run for the Zoo is celebrating its 38th year! This run/walk benefits the Lincoln Park Zoo - it helps keep the zoo free and open 365 days a year. #RunForTheZoo
Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature by providing a free, family-oriented wildlife experience in the heart of Chicago and by advancing the highest quality of animal care, education, science and conservation. Lincoln Park Zoo is a privately managed institution that depends primarily on the support of its visitors, members, and donors to remain open and free every day. More than two-thirds of the zoo’s operating budget is provided by revenue from its food service, retail shops, parking, and fundraising activities. The remaining portion is provided by a fixed annual subsidy from the Chicago Park District.
