The day we have been waiting for is almost here! This October 20, we’ll celebrate International Sloth Day with the 7th Annual Sloth Ironman Games. We couldn’t be more excited to commemorate this day with another edition of the games, mainly because this fundraiser is a BIG way we fund our sloth program.
For those new to this event: The Sloth Ironman Games is a fundraiser created to support our rehabilitation and rewilding program, Saving Sloths Together. We have carried out this event for seven years and have always ensured each year is better than the last. We are sure this is our best edition so far! Celebrating the seventh year, our goal for this is to raise $7,000 for sloth conservation!
We know we share with you our love for sloths. We are so excited for you to watch it and participate in this year’s fundraiser! We can assure you that it is a funny, adorable, and exhilarating experience. And what best way to help sloths than donating to this campaign? All the proceeds will go directly to the care of baby sloths and their rehabilitation program, which is tax-deductible!
