Come out for a certified 5k or 1 mile fun run at Walsingham Park to SAVE sharks!

Challenged by the worldwide decline in sharks over the past decades and inspired by all the great conservation efforts to save them we wanted to create an event where runners could support our efforts to save sharks.  Tiburon means shark in Spanish and the TibuRUN will be the perfect event to show your support for sharks in Florida.  Sharks are integral part of the marine ecosystem.  Without them this ecosystem will collapse in unpredictable ways.  Show your support for sharks by sponsoring this event.  Proceeds will benefit Shark Angels, Inc and the Canterbury School of Florida Marine Studies program.

As always PLEASE keep me updated with any events going on that I can promote. I hope all the teachers out there are having a good school year and I hope everyone else is well!
