Join me to challenge yourself over two weeks in this virtual walk/run/ride! I am raising money for Polar Bears International who works through “science, education, and advocacy to not only help save the polar bear species and their habitat but also preserve the climate that has allowed humans to flourish.” -- polarbearsinternational.org
This year the race is free to join, so everyone can participate in the challenge. Then, I welcome you to donate what you feel is best and/or use your participation in this challenge as a fundraiser to help others donate to help the polar bears and their Arctic habitat.
If you would prefer not to run/walk, but want to contribute to my birthday fundraiser, click Donate at the top of this page. Thank you!
The reason I am hosting this is because I love polar bears and their sea ice is melting too quickly and getting smaller. They need sea ice to live for at least half the year to hunt for enough food to stay alive, so less sea ice means polar bears cannot eat enough to stay healthy and survive. In addtion to donating money through my fundraiser to Polar Bears International, I encourage you to check out their website for actions you can take to reduce your impact on the polar bears' habitat: https://polarbearsinternational.org/get-involved/save-our-sea-ice-campaign/
