Why We Run

Ultimately, we run to help save wild gorillas in Africa.


By raising funds through the Edmonton Gorilla Run, Edmonton Ice Cream Run and through donations, we are able to provide scholarships in veterinary medicine for African students who will directly impact the survival of wild gorillas in Africa.
