On 26 September 2010 we ran through London dressed in full-body gorilla suits, along with around 600 others, to raise funds for this critically endangered species. It was our sixth time: you can see what we've achieved in previous years at www.japanesetranslations.co.uk/bujinkan/ozaru-run.htm or via www.justgiving.com/ozaru2008 (...2007, 2006 and so on): we've had a lot of fun and also raised over 5000 pounds ourselves, with over a million raised in total. Yet the ongoing crisis in Congo and other pressures mean much more is needed: for details (and some cute gorilla pics) visit www.gorillas.org. There are lots of pictures and videos of this year's run at www.greatgorillarun.org and on FaceBook, FlickR and so on.
through this website is quick, easy, totally secure, and also the most
efficient method of sponsoring us, as the Gorilla Organization gets your
money faster. What's more, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes
sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
Those outside the UK can donate just as easily, using any common credit
card. Corporate sponsorship is most welcome too (why not include a link
to your website in the comment area?).
We'd like it even better if you joined in! You can find out how to do this at www.greatgorillas.org.
It's not just marathons - abseiling, skiing, you name it... (although
it's all got to be in gorilla suits, of course). There are plenty of
events outside the UK too.
