5K. As in, “Here, kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty.”
As in, the Palm Beach Zoo’s Big Cat Race Series, to raise funds to help sustain the dwindling populations of jaguars, panthers and now, tigers. With fewer than 250 Malayan tigers left in the wild, proceeds from the May 20 Stacey Konwiser Memorial 5K will help support the zoo’s partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society at Endau Rompin National Park in Malaysia.
The starting gun goes off at precisely 7:30 a.m., and the course takes runners directly past the habitat where the zoo’s two tigers live.
Registration includes zoo admission and three half-price discount coupons for friends and family members to cheer for you and explore the zoo for the day.
