A HUGE thank you to everyone that took part in The Rainforest Run in 2020. Thanks to you, we raised a staggering £21,451! These vital funds will be used to continue our work protecting precious orangutan habitat in Borneo.
If you were unable to take part in 2020 or are ready to do it all over again – you can now register your interest for The Rainforest Run 2021.
The event will be taking place on Sunday 26th September 2021 so there is plenty of time to get training!
Please remember, the funds you raise will give hope to a species on the brink of extinction.
WHY IS THE RAINFOREST RUN SO IMPORTANT?
The Indonesian rainforest is vanishing before our eyes, with over two million acres lost every single year.
Orangutans are now on the brink of extinction.
Every single day they are forced out of their forest homes and left to starve and die.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
We are committed to building a future for every living being that depends on the rainforest for survival. And that means all of us! The rainforests are the lungs of the planet. Without them, none of us stands a chance of survival.
We are working to protect precious Indonesian rainforests by not only protecting the forests but also the wildlife within it and the communities who live alongside it. Through patrols, research, education and the provision of alternative livelihoods, we are working to keep the forests that we all depend on safe and thriving.
We urgently need to raise the funds to continue this important work!
WHAT YOU CAN DO
By taking part in The Rainforest Run you can help us protect precious habitats.
All funds raised will enable us to build a future for Critically Endangered orangutans.
No matter where you are in the world, whether you will be walking or running, you have the power to make a real and lasting difference.
WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Your support means more to us now than ever before. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, all of our upcoming fundraising events have been cancelled, resulting in a worrying loss of vital funding. The money raised from The Rainforest Run will enable us to continue our important work protecting precious Indonesian rainforest.
In light of the pandemic, please ensure you abide by the social distancing rules and recommendations set out by your country. The 5K can be done as a part of your daily exercise. Please only run alone or with members of your household who are healthy and well.
You could even really challenge yourself and attempt to complete the 5K in your garden or on your balcony.
