The 2017 WCS “Run for the Wild” is scheduled for Sat., April 29 at the Bronx Zoo.

Runners, walkers, and wildlife supporters are invited to participate in the 9th annual 5K race and family fun run/walk at the Bronx Zoo.

Each year, the run raises awareness of the threats facing wildlife while raising money to help WCS conservation work at the Bronx Zoo and around the world.

This year runners and walkers can choose to participate on behalf of whichever species most inspires them. Since its inception in 2009, more than more than 40,000 people have participated at the Bronx Zoo.

Registration is now open and there are many ways to participate.

Visit to register for the run or family fun walk; make a donation; or support a friend or team.

Prizes will be awarded to those who meet various fundraising goals. For $30 in pledges, runners will earn a WCS Run for the Wild T-shirt; $75 earns a plush animal; $150 earns a water bottle; $300 earns a tote bag; $600 earns a yoga mat; $1,000 earns Bronx Zoo tickets; $1,500 earns a VIP brunch. Each ascending incentive level achieved includes ALL prizes from the lower levels.
