Corvallis 5K Fun Run & Ocean Awareness Fundraiser

May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Graduate Student Kaylee Lawson and the Elakha Alliance for the first ever 5K Fun Run & Awareness Event on May 4th in Corvallis, OR! This event is a fundraiser for the Elakha Alliance’s efforts to restore Oregon’s sea otter population.

After the 5K Fun Run, we invite the community to gather at the Peffer Amphitheater for refreshments and drinks (for those 21+) from Two Towns Cider & Block 15 Brewing. We will also award Prize Packages to the Top 3 Fun Run finishers, followed by presentations from representatives of the Elakha Alliance and Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition.

Kaylee Lawson is a graduate from Oregon State University with a Bachelor’s in Fisheries and Wildlife Science (marine conservation focused), and is currently working towards a Conservation Master’s Degree at Miami University online. For her Master’s Degree, she has to complete an action component in her local community, so she connected with the Elakha Alliance to host a 5k Fun Run and Awareness Event to fundraise for the Elakha Alliance’s efforts to reintroduce sea otters back to Oregon.
