why we run
We Run to keep gorillas healthy!
Raising funds for education and for the survival of gorillas in central Africa.
Through conservation efforts by numerous non-profit/charitable, government, communities and other organizations, the mountain gorillas are the only great ape who's numbers are on the rise. from the mid 1980's, Dian Fossey's research indicated there were less than 300 mountain gorillas left in the world. Today there are 1004 mountain gorillas.
With hard work and dedication our conservation efforts work.
Through our fundraising events; the Edmonton Ice Cream Run and the Edmonton Gorilla Run, we are raising funds to provide scholarships in veterinary medicine for students who will directly impact the survival of gorillas in their natural habitat.
