SAVE THE BEE

Virtual Race

September 18 - October 5, 2020

EVENT DETAILS

Join GloryBee for what would have been our 6th Annual SAVE the BEE 5K, and is now our first ever Virtual Race for Honey Bees! Run, skip, walk, jump or roll to SAVE the BEE between Friday September 18th and Monday October 5th. Try a 5K, 10K or Half Marathon, whatever suits you and your fitness needs. Be sure to invite your friends!

So why Save the Bee? Honey bees do the heavy lifting when it comes to pollinating our food supply (80% of pollination of food crops), and we are losing them due to pervasive pesticide use, parasites, loss of foraging habitat and poor nutrition. Join GloryBee in getting the word out that honey bees need our help! The SAVE the BEE Initiative raises funds to support research and education to ensure the future of honey bees.
