About This Event

Watertown based Thomson Safaris has generously offered to be the presenting sponsor for this First Annual "Boston Run For Elephants". Visit our sponsor at www.thomsonsafaris.com.
An event for everyone, this 5k Run/Walk is a chance for you to run, push a stroller, jog or walk your way around the beautiful Chestnut Hill Reservoir while raising awareness and valuable funds for elephant care and protection. This Run/Walk builds on the momentum begun by similar runs held recently in L.A., London and New York's Central Park.
Once registered, please consider joining our fundraising efforts and take a moment to follow the link to set up a fundraising profile. This way, you can be supported by your family, friends and other ambassadors for elephants!
