Event Update

Like all of you, we’ve been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and its effect in New York. For that reason, we’ve decided to postpone this year’s WCS Run for the Wild.

We made this decision out of an abundance of caution and based on the recommendations and guidelines from the CDC, New York City and State, and Department of Health. This is one of our favorite annual events and we know many of you feel the same way. That’s why we wanted to be able to immediately provide a rescheduled date for your calendar and we can: September 26, 2020.

We hope that you will be able to join us later this year. All registrations and fundraising will carry over to the new date and the Run for the Wild website that you’ve been using will remain open.

We understand that you might have questions and concerns. Our Customer Service team is currently experiencing a high volume of calls, so out of respect for your time, please do not call in right now. We will follow up with additional details in the coming weeks. If the new date does not work for you, please consider keeping your fundraising in place and/or making your registration a donation to help our zoos and aquarium during this time.

Thank you for your support of WCS and the Run for the Wild.
