Jonathan Gilmour Memorial Scholarship Fund Ride and Walk
EVENT DATE: May 13, 2017
After 10 very successful years, this will be our final Jonathan Gilmour Memorial Scholarship Fund Ride and Walk. Help us ensure that the scholarship fund continues for many years to come!
Join us for the 10th and final Annual Jonathan Gilmour Memorial Scholarship Fund Ride and Walk on Saturday, May 13, 2017 in Hollis, NH.
The ride and walk, which begins and ends at Hollis’ historic Lawrence Barn, features multiple routes specially-designed for cyclists or walkers ranging from beginner to expert. Riders, volunteers, family and friends are invited to a festive post-race picnic. Proceeds support Zoo New England’s Jonathan Gilmour Memorial Scholarship Fund.
*By clicking on a route you will be redirected to a course map, once open - clicking on the red balloons will give you detailed course directions.
*Suggested fundraising minimum is $100.
The generous support of every participant has helped provide the opportunity for Zoo employees, from both Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo, to pursue conservation projects, education opportunities, research initiatives and other wildlife-focused efforts. Over the past 10 years of the award, 73 Zoo New England Scholarship winners were able to participate and assist in projects as varied as reintroducing Drill baboons back into the wild in Nigeria, restoration of Atlantic puffin colonies off the coast of Maine and studying endangered turtle populations in New England.
Participation in these projects has not only provided staff with inspiring conservation experiences, but in return, staff have provided these important programs with much needed assistance.
