Run Wild is a 5 km, family oriented, fun-run fundraiser. The money generated from Run Wild this year will go towards the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Research Centre and it’s continued care of orphaned and injured wildlife. 

This year, monies raised will play a very important part in caring for those animals that do not always get a successful second chance to go back to the wild. Rather those individuals that play an important role as ambassadors to their wild cousins, those individuals that add to your visiting experience including our resident bald eagle living at the Preserve for 6 years this August. 

Help us continue to care for these very important and special individuals!

Run Wild is a 5 km run or walk around our scenic loop, bring your family, bring your friends or come and make some new ones as you help to raise money to continue the care of Yukon's wildlife.
