Support the reopening of the Toledo Zoo’s aquarium with a foot race the whole family can run! There are mud runs, color runs, races and countless other races and dashes for adults all across the country—but how many of them let kids participate? Not many. The Toledo Zoo is changing that, with the Medical Mutual Dart Frog Dash! After adults complete the 5K race, kids 12 and under will be invited to line up for their very own 1K dash around the Zoo’s grounds. As they run, they’ll be able to check out the lions, tigers and bears (oh my!) as they go. For them, they’ll finally be able to explore the zoo at their own chosen speed! Register for the race by May 11 to receive your Dart Frog Dash t-shirt. All raised funds go to the zoo’s aquarium re-opening.
