ACS 50-Mile Dolphin Dash Run
ACS Executive Director Cheryl McCormick is running 50 miles (in a single day!) to raise awareness of critical conservation threats facing cetaceans worldwide, and to enable ACS to attend the 2012 meeting of the International Whaling Commission in Panama City, Panama. There, Cheryl will represent ACS and millions of citizens worldwide who care about whales, to advocate for whale conservation measures and block measures that compromise the safety and welfare of whales. On Thursday, June 28th at 5:30 a.m., Cheryl will begin her run around the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. She departs the very next morning for Panama City. Her support crew will provide video and updates during the run, so you can follow her progress! Watch for updates on the ACS website at www.acsonline.org.
