Thanks to your generous support we had one of the best Run for the Cheetah events in our history. Hundreds of runners sprinted through Washington Park and herds of children sporting faces painted as cheetahs dashed through the Zoo on a beautiful Sunday morning. All of this was done in support of the great work the Cheetah Conservation Fund is doing to help the cheetah in its race for survival.

Participation was great this year: 163 = 8K; 234 = 5K; and 142 = Kids Dash, for a total of 639 amazing runners and walkers.

This fantastic event raised much needed funds for CCF and it could not have happened without your help. So, once again on behalf of all of us at CCF, thank you for all that you do for the cheetah. Together we can keep the cheetah in the wild for future generations. Your support is invaluable. Thanks also to this year’s sponsors: Oregon Zoo, Java Jacket, American Industries, Speed’s Towing, Pampling Media Group, Foot Traffic, Glaceau Vitamin Water, N W Naturel, Comcast, Kink FM and the Marriott Portland!

We hope to see you next year. In the meantime, check out our video below!
