Mission Statement

Dedicated to protecting and saving endangered gorillas.

Description

The San Francisco Great Gorilla Run 7K (4.3 miles) is a fun run to benefit the world's last remaining mountain gorillas. This is a race you can't miss--everyone runs 7K in a full gorilla suit! The race will benefit The Gorilla Organization, an international charity working to
protect the survival of the mountain gorillas of Central Africa. The Gorilla Organization works to save the gorillas by confronting the direct threats to their habitats--human interference, logging, poaching, and illegal agriculture-- and by addressing the needs of poor communities living nearby. To do this, the Gorilla Organization provides funds for individuals to start a business, creates access to water for children and families, replants trees, and has started local resource centers that teach environmental education and sustainable agriculture practices. JOIN US to support this important work by registering for the first-ever San Francisco Great Gorilla Run 7K! Your participation WILL make a difference.
