Come on out to the Zoo to Run Wild on Sunday, September 29, 2019! This year is all about you: our community! Tell us who you are running for - is it your kids so that they can have polar bears in their future, or your grandparents who listened to lions roaring here when they were kids? Or is it your favorite zoo animal?

Individual & Team Fundraising:  We are once again challenging all Run Wild participants to get involved by participating in our team and individual fundraising challenge.  The top teams will win amazing prizes only available at the zoo! All dollars raised at the Run Wild directly support the Henry Vilas Zoo and our commitment to wildlife conservation! 

The top three teams and individuals who raise the most money win amazing prizes!
