RUN FOR THE BEES!
A Virtual Race during National Pollinator Week
June 21 – July 4, 2021


EVENT DETAILS
Join GloryBee for our 7th Annual Run for the Bees. This virtual race to save honey bees will be held during National Pollinator Week, so you can run, skip, walk, or roll to SAVE the BEE between Monday June 21st and Sunday July4th.  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 food crop pollination), 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.
