Marin Mammal Center

This seems like a really cool and fun fund-raiser!

For more info you can go to:


Run for the Seals (RFTS) is The Marine Mammal Center's annual fun run/walk and fundraiser. After a one year hiatus, the Center is excited to host the 2010 event and incorporate the event into its new facility that opened to the public in June 2009.

As one of the largest fundraising events in the Center's calendar, all proceeds and funds raised from RFTS, help support The Marine Mammal Center's ongoing work to rescue and treat ill, injured and orphaned marine mammals.

The event is on Saturday, March 13, 2010 in the beautiful Marin Headlands, starting at Rodeo Beach and ending at Bunker Road near the Centers new hospital and visitor center. This years race provides participants with two route options*:

- The original 4-mile race (self-timed); a road and dirt track route through the Headlands (uphill in parts).
- Plus a new 2-mile scenic route overlooking the ocean for those who want a shorter but challenging and
rewarding walk with viewing, refreshment and education stations along the way.

The event is open to all ages and is perfect for runners (casual and pro), hikers, 'baby
-joggers' and power-strollers. There will also be a costume contest and dogs on leashes are welcome too!

After the event, all participants are invited to attend our FUN DAY* which will take place at The Marine Mammal Center. During Fun Day between 10am - 5pm, guests will enjoy food, drinks and tours, and visit booths staffed by our RFTS Community Partners while learning about the important work of the Center.

Awards will be given to the first three adults and children across the 4-mile finish line, and prizes will be awarded to the highest adult, child and team fundraisers.
