About Roundhouse Fun Run for the Oceans
The Fun Run will raise money for the Roundhouse Aquarium Teaching Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and its programs which educate and inspire visitors of all ages about the oceans, marine life, the environment. The Roundhouse Aquarium programs deliver science and environmental education to students throughout the South Bay and Los Angeles community.
A few facts about the Roundhouse:
- Each year roughly 15,000 students from Pre-k through 12th grade learn about science, the oceans and environment through our education programs.
- Thanks to donors and partner programs, 80% of our on-site and outreach classes are free to the schools.
- Our volunteer program includes 100 dedicated volunteers who donate over 6,300 hours annually. About 95% are local high school students.
Funds raised by the Roundhouse Fun Run for the Oceans 2020 will support and improve the Roundhouse Aquarium’s education and volunteer programs.
