Mission Statement

The Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund (MGCF) is dedicated to the conservation and protection of the highly endangered Mountain Gorillas in Africa, their habitat, and working with the people around the National Parks. MGCF currently needs to expand the veterinary programs offered to the local Ugandans and Rwandans. The current facility, Makerere University, has outgrown itself and we need more room to further the education of locals to first, protect the Mountain Gorilla, then expand to other wildlife in Uganda and Rwanda.

Description

750 gorilla suits in closets across Austin await re-emergence for The 2nd Annual Austin Gorilla Run! January 21st run through downtown Austin IN FULL GORILLA COSTUME. Your entry fee gets you the gorilla suit (for keeps), the run, & After-Party at Fado Irish Pub, catering your free brunch. Proceeds directly benefit The Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, protecting the endangered Mountain Gorilla
