Running for the sun bears! – Bornean Sun Bear Conservation

Running for the sun bears! – Bornean Sun Bear Conservation

Maren Dallman will support Ursa Freedom Project’s charity cause by raising money for the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre when she races in the Reading Half Marathon in Berkshire, England on Sunday, March 21. Maren said she is supporting the sun bears because “this little bear is nearly as close to extinction as the panda but hardly anyone knows of their existence. The sooner the centre is completed the better for the bears, and I want to do what I can to help ”

Maren’s goal is to raise $2 per mile (13 miles), and another $1 per mile if she beats her personal record of 1hr 59mins. Let’s help her reach her charity goal to save the sun bears.

Maren:

I am running for the Sun Bears on March 21 and want to raise as much as possible. As you know the money is desperately needed to complete the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre and anything you can afford would be much appreciated

My aim for the race is to beat my personal best for a half marathon of 1 hour 59 minutes. Maybe you could pledge an additional amount if I achieve this :-)

Donations can be made via facebook causes:

or on the BSBCC site:

It would be nice to know how much I have raised, so maybe you could just send me a brief message

Thank you so much on behalf of the sun bears!!!!

Wong’s notes:

Like Anna, Julie, and many other who take real action to run for sun bear, Maren’s action is really touching to me. I hope there is a way to tell the sun bears at BSBCC that someone like Maren is working hard to fund raise for them. Thank you Maren. I hope many people will show their help and donate to our course!

Maren has take action to make a difference, how about you? Can you help?
