We’ve teamed up with Virtual Racing UK to present the Race for Born Free 5k, which will take place throughout June, to mark Virginia McKenna’s milestone 90th birthday.
Entrants are asked to walk, run, swim or cycle the 5k distance during the month of June, for Born Free, for Elsa, and for Virginia!
The 5k can be completed in one session or over multiple occasions, simply upload proof of completion before the deadline of the 4th July 2020 to receive the very special Elsa medal. The first 90 entrants will also receive a Born Free Charity Ribbon when they claim their medal reward.
Why not ask family and friends to sponsor you and download a sponsor form here or set up your own JustGiving page to support Born Free? All money raised will go towards supporting our vital conservation work.
