Frolic for Flippers 5K 2012 – a HUGE success

Thanks to everyone that joined us September 22, 2012 onsite and afar for our “2nd Annual Frolic for Flippers 5K“.   Though the rain decided to crash our party for the second year in a row, the drizzly rain created the perfect Frolic for Flippers weather.

We are thrilled to announce that between onsite registrations, Frolic from Afar registrations, participant fundraising, and raffle ticket sales (and some donations are still coming in daily), you helped us raise over $5000 for the UNE Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center!

Every dollar earned really does make a HUGE difference.  Our animals appreciate it and so do we!

Here’s a summary of our event:

Total Participants:  211
Total On-site Participants:  145
Total ‘Frolic from Afar’ Participants:  32
2012 Event Volunteers:  34

Top Fundraiser:  Nicole Hunter
Top Runner:  Chris Harman, Age 25 completed the course in a whopping 16:10.2!  Nice work!
