OUR SUPPRTED CHARITY - SAVING THE SURVIVORS
About Saving the Survivors - Due to the escalation in poaching and snaring incidents, the number of victims is rapidly increasing. Fortunately many injured animals have been given a second chance after undergoing various interventions and surgical procedures performed by the Saving The Survivors team. Most of these animals are treated in their natural habitat as transporting injured wildlife increases the risk and trauma they experience.
Every case they encounter is unique and tests their teams’ resolve. They are very fortunate to collaborate with world-renowned clinical specialists and conservation groups, and are very grateful for the unwavering support of the public.
The money we raise from donations and the 'medal cost' will assist this incredible team to buy petrol to get to where they are needed , purchase milk for the baby rhinos and help with any veterinary fees.
MEDALS vs. OUR CHARITY and DONATIONS
Saving the Survivors is our chosen charity for Cradle Cracker Series.
Instead of giving medals to all finishers, you can choose to either:
1) Donate the 'medal portion' of your entry fee to our chosen charity, or
2) Request a medal when you enter online, or
3) Do both.
