Montefiore Einstein has been a proud partner of Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo for 15 consecutive years. At this year’s event on April 29, more than 5,000 participants are expected to make tracks at the annual fundraising event for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
Whether you run, walk or donate, your participation will support conservation and scientific discovery in the Bronx and worldwide.
This year’s run is dedicated to the sloth, and just like this beloved animal, you don’t have to be fast to make a difference. Run for the Wild offers both a 5K race for individuals, starting at 8:00 a.m., and a 3K Family Fun Run/Walk for participants, starting at 9:30 a.m.
Participants get all-day access to the zoo, including:
- Exclusive access to the zoo prior to the public opening
- All-day access to all rides and attractions
- Free parking
- Post-run refreshments, entertainment and activities for all ages
- A 2023 WCS Run for the Wild commemorative T-shirt and medal
- Discounted tickets to the Bronx Zoo’s Treetop Adventure
Montefiore Einstein will host a free, restorative yoga session and provide giveaways at the end of the race.
Any Montefiore Einstein associates interested in participating can register and use code MONTEFIORE RFTW to receive $10 off the registration fee. All adult participants must meet the $35 fundraising minimum before the race to participate in the day’s events.
