The Purpose of the "50-Mile Dolphin Dash"

Welcome to my blog leading up to the American Cetacean Society's 2nd Annual "50-Mile Dolphin Dash" fundraiser run on Wednesday, July 6th, Monterey, CA. I'm willing to shed 50 miles worth of blood, sweat, and (possibly) tears to raise funds to attend the annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in St. Helier, Jersey (UK), where ACS will be speaking out against commercial whaling and compromises to international whale protection measures. I'm also the Executive Director of ACS, so I put my heart and "sole" where my mouth is.

Support the Dolphin Dash with a tax-deductible contribution:

Mile 50: ACS Dolphin Dash


Cheryl ran all 50 miles of the Dolphin Dash and is still standing. Not only that she is out running an extra 5 miles in honor of a $500 donation from the ACS Monterey Bay Chapter. This is amazing and crazy! Tomorrow she hops (possibly literally) on a plane to fly to Morocco to attend the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting. This just in...Cheryl just finished 55 miles! Thanks to everyone who donated. And for those who haven't yet there is still plenty of time just go to: http://dolphindash.eventbrite.com/

And for those wondering...yes Cheryl is still standing after 55 miles. Wow! Thanks Cheryl for all you are doing for the whales and dolphins!
