PHILIPSBURG:— The St Maarten Zoo invites the community to jump start 2016 on a healthy note with a “Walk For A Cause”. This family-friendly event is scheduled for Saturday, February 27, 2016.
The walkathon starts at 5:00 a.m. sharp; check-in begins at 4:45 a.m. at the Zoo’s parking lot. The route will take walkers 3.6 miles around the Great Salt Pond.
“This will be our second year hosting a walkathon and we are extremely excited. Last year was successful and we do hope that our supporters come out in full force said Public Relations Officer of the Board Caisha Evans.
As the St. Maarten Zoo has always been an advocate for sustainability, we will not be printing t-shirts for the event, however, with the purchase of the ticket, a hearty breakfast, oranges for energy and water will be provided. In order to enjoy the breakfast and refreshments your ticket must be presented.
Tickets may be purchased for $10 at the St. Maarten Zoo in Madame Estate (Tel: 1721- 5432030), and/or from Board members whom you can contact via our Facebook page: facebook.com/StMaarten Zoo. All proceeds will be going towards the well care of the Zoo. This is a great way to start the year off in the right direction, for you and for our Zoo.
