Whale Run and Walk Latest News.…
With mixed emotions, Soroptimist International of Fort Bragg has decided to cancel the 2021 Whale Run & Walk. We know it’s the right choice, but we’re disappointed, as we want nothing more than to bring our community together with this time-honored event.
While the vaccine rollout has gained momentum, and it’s looking promising to hold large outdoor public events this summer, we have concluded that we do not have the capacity to monitor social distancing protocols at an event that attracts up to 1000 people. Additionally, we are not in a position to risk losing non-refundable planning and logistics expenses in the event of a last-minute cancellation due to COVID-19 restrictions.
We are not registering any new runners for 2021. We look forward to an in-person Whale Run & Walk on March 19, 2022.
Since 1975, funds raised by SIFB have been donated back to our community. Annually, Soroptimist International of Fort Bragg has provided more than $16,000 in awards and scholarships to local high school students and women heads-of-household. In addition, SIFB typically contributes over $5,000 annually to many local non-profit organizations, which include Project Sanctuary, Mendocino Coast Children’s Fund, Safe Passage, Hospitality House, and the Redwood Coast Senior Center.
Unfortunately, due the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 Whale Run & Walks, our ability to contribute to scholarships and community non-profits has been greatly reduced. We are hoping you can help us raise our level of support to our community this year by donating through our website or the Whale Run & Walk registration page.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
