April the Lamb - Events this month at the Zoo

April the Lamb – Events this month at the Zoo

Have anything to do this April? Well if not, come check out the Zoo!

We’ve already had two great events this month back to back. They were the Walk to Cure Psoriasis and Autism Awareness Day. The next two events shall be just as exciting! On April 19th, we’ll be having the Philly Rabbit Run 5K organized by Shake It Off for Parkinson’s, and I have 3 reasons why everyone should go to the Zoo. One, you should know that the fee you pay to run goes towards fighting Parkinson’s disease! Two, the fee you pay to run also lets you explore the Zoo afterwards as well! And the third reason is  that you might meet fellow runners there as well just like yourself! On April 27th, we’ll be having the Save the Orangutans 5K Run/Walk as well! For both events, this is a good chance to get out and be active! You can find more info at http://www.philadelphiazoo.org/Explore/Upcoming-Events.htm

Also, if you haven’t noticed yet, the Zoo has gotten a new hot air balloon for one year to replace the one that was damaged by the snow! This one has the words “soar once more” on the side. If you’re interested in coming to see the new balloon, just come out to the Philadelphia Zoo! Of course, to celebrate the beginning of spring, why not come to visit the outdoor animals too? They’re very lonely and are eager to meet you guys, so come out and greet them!

Wanna run? Wanna visit the zoo? Then come on, what are you waiting for? Explore!
