Raising Money And Awareness For Elephants At YOUR Topeka Zoo!

It's time to lace up those shoes and get ready for the 2nd Annual Gary Clarke Run For The Wild!  The event scheduled for Saturday, August 25, will feature a 4 mile chip-timed run and a 1 mile fun run/walk. The unique race will wind through scenic Gage Park and surrounding neighborhoods and conclude back at the Topeka Zoo.
The "Run" is also a walk - all families are encouraged to grab their strollers and head out to experience a beautiful morning at Gage Park and the Topeka Zoo.
Following the run and presentation of awards, we will "Party With The Pachyderms" at the elephant yard where you will meet Tembo and Sunda, the zoos resident elephants.  Watch Sunda play soccer, Tembo paint, and tour their barn where you will learn about the care they receive at the Topeka Zoo.  While there, learn why elephants are endangered and what we can all do to preserve this beautiful species!
