Race Preview: Save the Bee 5K (Vancouver)

Bees pollinate 1 out of every 3 bites of food you eat.
Bees are in danger. Help GloryBee SAVE the BEE.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am not ready to give up a third of the food I eat. Especially if that food is after a tough workout.

Save the Bee 5K this September is a way to help protect all those bites, and the bees that make them possible. This is the 5th time for this annual event and it’s occurring along the beautiful forests near Marine Park in Vancouver, Washington. All race proceeds go toward the Save the Bee campaign; a great non-profit where 100% of funds support:

  • Research: Assisting OSU and WSU Honey Bee Labs in procuring much needed funding to conduct critical honey bee health research
  • Awareness: Partnering with non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting pollinators
  • Education: Teaching beekeeping skills to our community to maintain healthy honey bee colonies.

Invest a little money and time this fall into helping support a local non-profit, and all those future bites of food.
