Rhino Crash

Fri May 22 - Sun May 24 Denver, CO US 80205

These are trying times and we all need an outlet.  Whether we need to connect with others, connect with nature, relieve stress or shed the extra baggage we may have acquired during "shelter-in-place" orders . 

Hopefully, Rocky Mountain AAZK will be able to assist with this, in a very small way, by our hosting our first ever

Rhino Crash! 


This is a virtual "Go the Distance" event in support of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) campaign.

What exactly is a virtual "Go the Distance" event? 

 A virtual event means that you can participate from anywhere and in your time table as long as it's within the event dates.

  • at home
  • around your neighborhood (while practicing safe social distancing)
  • open space (while practicing safe social distancing)
  • at work (great option for those with physical jobs, a.k.a animal care staff...HINT HINT)
But how?
  • We don't care if you walk / jog / run / skip / saunter / bounce / meander / slither / slide / dance or stampede.  We just want you to get up, move and "Go the Distance" to save rhinos!
  • You may use equipment such as a treadmill, elliptical, stair climber, etc. You just have to be your feet (no bicycling, rowing, swimming, etc.)
  • After the race time, just log-in to your participant page and record your distance traveled.  It's that easy!
Participate on your own, form a CRASH (group of rhinos), FUNdraise, and Earn PRIZES!! 

Prizes will be awarded for

  • Individual - TOP fundraiser
  • Individual - Most Distance Traveled
  • CRASH - TOP fundraiser
  • CRASH with Best Team Name
