Next month, actress Sophia Bush will run the 5k race with Team Nature Conservancy (http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamNatureConservancySF2011/fundraiser/sophiabush) as part of the San Francisco Marathon to raise awareness and critically needed funds to help protect our most threatened natural places. And, you too can help. Here's how:
* Give $26 or more to support Team Nature Conservancy through this link (http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamNatureConservancySF2011/fundraiser/sophiabush), and you'll be entered to win a BlackBerry from Crowdrise.
* Join Team Nature Conservancy and fundraise on behalf of nature. (http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamNatureConservancySF2011/fundraiser/natureconservancy)
* Sign up to run the marathon, 5K or progressive marathon. (http://www.thesfmarathon.com/)
When you sign up to run the full marathon (http://www.thesfmarathon.com/) you will race to the scenic Marin Headlands, which the Conservancy helped to protect in 1972. The headlands are now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, one of the most visited sites in the national park system and home to more endangered species than any other national park in the continental U.S.
It's a special experience to run in a place that your support has helped protect—sign up to run (http://www.thesfmarathon.com/), then join Team Nature Conservancy (http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamNatureConservancySF2011/fundraiser/natureconservancy) to raise funds for nature.
