About This Activity

Born to be Wild? Passionate about preserving what is Wild or what remains of our planet’s wilderness?

Make a positive impact this Earth Day by helping us create the first annual World Wide Race Against Extinction Outdoor Activity Challenge!

Pick your favorite outdoor activity and go wild to benefit Mother Nature!

You can participate anytime, anywhere and anyhow by selecting one of our many activity categories listed below and on or help us create your own!

Outdoor activity challenge registration categories include:

  • Cheetahs (experienced and first-time runners)
  • Tortoises (walkers)
  • Kangaroos (parents running or walking with their “Joeys” in strollers)
  • Wolf Packs (runners, hikers or walkers with their pets)
  • Mountain Goats (Hikers)
  • Polar Bears (Road Cyclists)
  • Grizzly Bears (Mountain Bikers)
  • Sea Otters (Paddlers – Canoeists & Kayakers)
  • Gazelles (inline skaters) and
  • Sloths (those who cannot or will not be running, peddling, paddling, walking or moving in general on or near Earth Day but would like to support and help protect their fellow species!) 

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 our exclusive charitable partner World Wildlife Fund. 

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 pledged, accumulated and the $ raised and keep you updated on our site @
