Description

Race Purpose:  PA Rhino Conservation Advocates (PARCA) welcomes you to our first Run for Rhinos!  Our mission is to prevent extinction of the rhino and to preserve the ecosystem in which it resides.  The funds raised will go toward educating the public about rhino conservation and to support partner organizations who are transporting rhinos out of high poaching areas, re-establishing rhino populations in areas decimated by poaching and providing care for poaching victims that survive.  Save a species!
