Melissa's run for Sumatran Tigers
Running for the Wild
Please sponsor me. I’m aiming to raise $5,000 for Sumatran Tigers
Only two weeks to go until I run 23 hilly kms at the Great Ocean Road Half Marathon on 18 May. I’m hoping to raise over $5,000 for critically endangered Sumatran Tigers.
My hips hurt, my back hurts but I’m determined to keep running because every day, Sumatran Tigers are dying. Less than 400 survive in the wild due to illegal poaching and destruction of their habitat for agriculture. They are hunted for their skins and bones.
So far my amazing friends and family have donated $4,668. Any donation big or small would be fantastic.
Your donation will go to the Taronga Conservation Society Australia to help conserve Sumatran Tigers, with over 30 bred at the Zoo since 1979. Taronga’s breeding program acts as an insurance against extinction in the wild. Taronga also campaigns for sustainably grown palm oil in tiger habitats and partners with international groups to protect Sumatran Tigers in the wild from poaching.
Thank you for your support, Melissa
