The Alaska SeaLife Center’s Wildlife Rescue Run is still happening – virtually!
So far this year, ASLC has raised more than $5,000 towards its Wildlife Response Program. And you can help make this year’s Rescue Run an even bigger success by participating as a Virtual Runner. Virtual Runners can run the 5K wherever and whenever they want, or not at all. Sign up online by August 31 to be entered to win 25,000 Alaska Airline miles courtesy of GCI. All virtual run registrants will receive a gift in the mail.
ASLC’s Wildlife Response Program is funded entirely through private donations and fundraisers like the Rescue Run and annual Mini Golf Tournament at the Center. The money raised goes directly towards animal care and veterinary costs for stranded seals, sea otters, and other marine animals rescued throughout the year.
