Race Purpose:  PA Rhino Conservation Advocates (PARCA) welcomes you to our 4th annual Run for Rhinos!  PARCA is working with partners in Africa to prevent extinction of the rhino and to preserve its ecosystem.  The funds raised go toward educating the public about rhino conservation and to our partners who are transporting rhinos out of high poaching areas, providing care for orphans left behind by poaching, and providing monitoring to keep rhino populations safe. 

Rhinos are being killed at rates that outpace how quickly they can reproduce. We must act NOW to prevent extinction. Help us save a species!
