Last week it was brought to our attention that the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) was holding a design contest for the their Run For The Wild 5K run at the Bronx Zoo coming up at the end of April. After recently entering a design contest for the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K, and making it into the quarter-finals, we figured why not give the WCS contest a shot.
The money raised from this year's Run For The Wild will help protect the penguins of Punta Tombo, and therefore the design needed to be penguin related.
We put a simple twist on a classic running man design and are proud to share our 'running penguin' design. Yes, even a penguin can break a sweat running through the Bronx Zoo in late April ;)
The finalists will be announced soon so please cross your flippers for us and we'll keep everyone posted.
