Proceeds from the Roo Run will be split among the Zoo and Tri 4 Schools to help us continue to operate in Dane County. We donate 100% of the entry fees from our triathlons to school health and fitness programs, meaning we must cover our race and operational costs through fundraising. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact our Director, Katie Hensel, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Zoo Run Run will benefit the Zoo.
