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:

2011 Dolphin Dash Halfway Point

ACS Executive Directory Cheryl McCormick is approaching the halfway point of the 2011 Dolphin Dash. Twenty-five miles down, twenty-five to go! Cheryl McCormick is running 50 miles to protect cetaceans and to raise funds to attend the 2011 International Whaling Commission meeting later this week in the UK. At the IWC meeting, she'll be speaking out against commercial whaling. Show your support for Cheryl with a tax-deductible contribution. Just click on the Dolphin Dash link at!

2011 Dolphin Dash Underway

Cheryl started on her 50-mile quest this morning shortly before 6 a.m. in Monterey, CA. She is now making her way along scenic and inspiring 17-mile Drive towards Pebble Beach. Running strong!
