Did you know more than 10 million sharks are killed annually for their fins? To help stop this practice SEA LIFE Aquarium Kansas City has partnered with Henley Aquatic Center in Independence, Missouri, to create the first annual Fin-A-Thon that will be held on Friday, August 8th, 2014. People of all ages are invited to participate in this fin-tastic event to help raise money for WildAid to assist in their initiative against shark finning.
Those interested in participating are asked to form a group of five friends and raise $250 collectively. To register your team, please visit SEA LIFE Aquarium Kansas City's website and bring your money to the event. During the Fin-A-Thon, we will collectively swim 50 miles, the same amount of miles a Blacktip Reef Shark swims in one day!
