Mystic Aquarium’s annual Run/Walk for the Penguins fundraiser is going virtual in 2020. Not only will the new format allow the Aquarium’s community to continue its support of penguin conservation safely but also in fun and unique new ways. From adding a 10K option for running enthusiasts to a .5k waddle for the more sedentary, the goal remains to raise funds to benefit Mystic Aquarium’s mission programs including the conservation efforts of endangered African penguin populations. All participants will receive a themed bib and medal. Early registrants will also receive a commemorative t-shirt. There will be prizes for fastest runners, top-fundraisers and most referrals. Participants will also be encouraged to participate in mini challenges for exclusive prizes.
