SAN ANTONIO (September 25, 2013) – Participants who sign up to run or walk in SeaWorld® San Antonio's fourth annual Run for the Fund on Saturday, October 5 will recieve free admission into SeaWorld on race day when they register for the 5K, 10K or Family Fun Walk. There is a $40 registration fee for each 5K and 10K participant and $30 for each Family Fun Walk participant. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. In addition to free admission to the park on race day, the registration fee includes a pre-race packet with special offers and discounts. More than 1,000 participants are expected to spring, job or walk past sea lions, dolphins, birds and reptiles at SeaWorld.

All of the event's proceeds are donated to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund, which has granted more than $10 million to protect wildlife and wild places in over 65 countries. Last year, the run generated more than $38,000 which supported the restoration of marsh grass in Texas' Galveston Bay, manatee conservation in the Amazon and much more.

The run/walk is situated on the scenic grounds of SeaWorld and will lead participants past numerous animal encounter zones provided by SeaWorld's Animal Ambassador Team. Plus, the fun doesn't end after the race; every participant will get to enjoy after-race festivities, including a special presentation at Shamu Theater.

Animals in need around teh world benefit from more than $1.1 million in grants awarded this year by the non-profit. The Fund focuses its resources in four strategic areas: species research, habitat protection, animal rescue and rehabilitation, and conservation education.
