Do it for the gorillas!

Attention runners and animal lovers (and runners who love animals):

We've all heard how the Bronx Zoo is struggling.  But there was some good news for the Wildlife Conservation Society earlier this month, when the New York State Legislature OK'd $9 million to be set aside for zoos, botanical gardens and aquariums around the state.

Still, the Bronx Zoo is hoping to raise an additional $150,000 by hosting the first Run for the Wild this Saturday, April 25th.

Even if you're not a runner, you can participate in the 5K by walking (or by joining me while I cheer on my marathon-running, Bronx born-and-bred dad). You could also fundraise or sponsor a runner.
