The 2017 Saving the Elephants Run will take place this coming November 18th from 9:00AM to 12:00PM in New York’s iconic Central Park to benefit the leading elephant science and research organization, Save the Elephants. This year for the first time representatives of Kenya’s Samburu tribe will participate in the festivities, underscoring the organization’s deep ties with the African community and its commitment to social and wildlife conservation.

Extraordinary Journeysoutfitters of luxurious African safaris, is co-sponsoring the event alongside US clothing and apparel brand Ivory Ella – a 10-kilometer, family-friendly charity race where all proceeds directly benefit Save The Elephants’ on-the-ground efforts to combat the poaching of elephants in Kenya and the trafficking of their ivory.
