The 2021 Saving The Elephants 10K Run Walk

The 2021 Saving The Elephants 10K Run/Walk is happening! Hello, amazing Runners and Walkers on Tybee Island and around the world!

You’re invited to register for the 2021 Saving the Elephants 10k Run/Walk! We are very excited it’s back in person (with a virtual option) this year.  There may not have as many runners or walkers as in the past so we need even more help on the fundraising side.  We are only at 1% of our goal currently as we have raised $4,976 of the $300,000 we need to raise.
