An event for everyone, this 5k Run/Walk is a chance for you to run, push a stroller, jog or walk your way around the beautiful Chestnut Hill Reservoir while raising awareness and valuable funds for elephant care and protection. This Run/Walk builds on the momentum begun by similar runs held recently in L.A., London and New York's Central Park.
