Tread for Taiji 2018 Virtual Race
Ready to make a difference for dolphins?
Dolphin Project is proud to announce our third annual Virtual Race to raise awareness about dolphin captivity and the drive hunts of Taiji, Japan. This August, no matter where you are around the world – run, walk, cycle, or swim on behalf of dolphins!
It’s fast and easy to join. To get started, click on our Virtual Race page on Crowdrise, and help raise funds to support our upcoming Taiji campaign while spreading the word about the slaughter that takes place each year. Join as an individual, or create a team for mutual encouragement and some friendly competition! Last year was a blast, as our participants walked, ran, and swam over 283 miles to raise awareness for the Taiji hunts and dolphin captivity.
This event is a terrific opportunity to raise awareness in your local community while getting together with friends and doing something fun and healthy. In the month leading up to the start of the Taiji hunting season, we want the world to know what takes place in The Cove, as documented by the Oscar-award winning movie of the same name. Dolphin Project will once again be on the ground in Taiji during the entire hunting season, documenting and disseminating information as we continue our critical mission of ending dolphin captivity and the hunts that supply dolphins to aquariums and marine parks across the world.
The official race will take place on August 18, but you can complete the race any time during the week before, or spread out your mileage across several days. All participants who reach our fundraising minimum will be awarded with a t-shirt and medal, and additional prizes will be awarded for race times, most funds raised, and most creative fundraiser. We hope you’ll join us this year to make an even bigger impact!
*Please note: Participants must raise at least $50 on their fundraiser by June 30 to qualify for a t-shirt and medal.*
On behalf of us all at Team Dolphin Project, good luck!
