We did it! During the week of September 28-October 4, 497 participants from 37 states and 8 countries took part in the first-ever REEF Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K. Thank you to everyone who ran, walked, biked, hiked, or swam to support marine conservation. Together, we completed more than 2,485 meters or 1,540 miles.
What's more, we raised money for the Oceans for All Fund to provide ocean science programs for underserved communities and those with financial needs. Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K participants helped us build a better world now and for future generations. To see all the fun, check out this photo album of race participants.
Going forward, the Fish Out of Water Virtual 5K will coincide with World Oceans Day (June 8) each year. Mark your calendar for June 7-12, 2021, and plan to join us next year. More information and race registration will be coming soon.
