In case you were unaware, the Florida Panther is a creature about as special as it is endangered. If you are not also aware, the vast majority Americans (who are most certainly not an endangered species) can do with a bit more exercise. So if you’re looking to add a little running to your life for your New Year’s resolution but you could frankly use a bit more inspiration than your own waistline, the second-annual “Save the Panther 5K” race at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, presented by Sagicor Life Insurance Co., is taking place on Saturday. The race route winds through Dreher Park, where the zoo is located, and then finishes inside the zoo grounds.
The Palm Beach Zoo is located at 1301 Summit Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Advance registration is $35 for adults and $20 for children under 18. The morning of the race, onsite registration will increase to $40 and $25 respectively. To register online, visit tinyurl.com/Panther5k.
