Description

The Meritrust Credit Union Tiger Trot features a flat, fast 5k and one of the state’s only certified 15k courses.  This year we will have over $2,000 in prizes and awards including customized medals, sock-toss (a road race first), and other great prizes. 

This year we are proud to include the Dragon Walk to benefit the Dragon Master Foundation, a charity devoted to curing brain cancer.  There will be a 5k walk, and a 1k walk for kids through the Park itself.  Register for either distance, and then try to raise money for this amazing cause!

Sponsors

Tanganyika Wildlife Park is a private, family-owned zoo passionate about preserving endangered animals. More than 50% of the animals in our care are endangered—animals that runners can see in person after the race as our guests.

Tiger Trot is one of the most important fundraising events benefitting the Tanganyika Winter Fund as part of our 501(c)(3) Species Survival Fund. This fund helps us raise the $600,000 it takes to support the animals in our care each year with no assistance from government funding, while also working for wildlife around the world.

Mission:  To develop and implement tools and technology to empower brain cancer researchers to collaborate more effectively, and further, to encourage that collaboration through grants and conferences.

 

Goals:

  • Develop a large scale database that will transcend existing consortiums and databases and will house genomic data alongside patient historical data
  • Reward researchers and institutions who share data with the database by leveraging existing grant funding and creating new grants through fundraising efforts
  • Provide opportunities for researchers to work with each other and with other experts outside their field of expertise to expand the horizons of research by pushing their experiences outside the box
  • Provide a system for tracking patients from one clinical study and/or hospital to the next and give researchers better long-term data on deaths and survivors
