The 5K Run Wild supporting the Orangutan Foundation International will be held on April 27th at the Philadelphia Zoo. The foundation is dedicated to ensuring the long-term survival of endangered orangutans. The 5k run/walk raises funds that help rescue and rehabilitate wild orangutans and permanently protects rainforest habitat for orangutans. Orangutans share 96% of their DNA with humans! At the inaugural event, over $23,000 was raised which translated into 200 acres of land preserved for orangutans. Consider participating in this event and obtain more information here.
