Whether you choose to engage in your favorite outdoor activity and participate as a Lone Wolf or as part of a larger Green Herd, your miles and kilometers and registration $ will go towards our collective team goal with proceeds going to your favorite conservation organization. 

Each $ will help our Polar Bears traverse around the globe enabling them to visit all seven continents and their friends along the way.  We will keep track of the distance the team has accumulated and the $ raised and keep you updated on our site @

Please challenge your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, students, classmates, fellow worshipers or science lab partners to participate and help us grow the green herd and expand this event’s impact on preserving the wonders of our natural world!
