Virtual 5k

We are taking our annual Yes We Peli-CAN! Race Team virtual this year and inviting our friends and supporters throughout the U.S. and Canada to join us for a 5K in support of our work rescuing water birds in crisis. The run-walk event runs September 5-13, 2020.

Our goal is to raise awareness surrounding the birds that share our natural spaces, and raise $25,000 to support the care of injured, oiled, and orphaned water birds at our two wildlife rehabilitation centers.
