Save The Frogs Day 5K in Seattle: April 28, 2012
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
We are happy to announce that Seattle will be the site of a major Save The Frogs Day event on April 28, 2012! Please join us for our Save The Frogs Day 5K Fun Run & Walk at Seward Park. Enjoy your Saturday morning with other frog lovers and a great view of Lake Washington and help us raise awareness for Washington's disappearing amphibian populations. There will be fun activities for all ages, so please join us whether you are running, walking, or just enjoying the festivities! Please bring a drum and invite your musician friends as we will be Drumming For The Frogs!
Please help us spread the word about the Seattle Save The Frogs Day 5K and read below for lots of ways you can get involved and help us make this event a huge success.
Please register early for the Seattle 5K!
Registration for the Save The Frogs Day 5K has begun! Please register by April 1st, 2012 to get the best price, and to help us with our planning and pre-race fundraising.
Not running, but still attending? Please RSVP!
If you think you will attend the Seattle 5K to show your support and enjoy the live music, please RSVP so we can keep you posted as to event updates, and to help us predict attendance.
Help us raise funds for the Seattle 5K!
Save The Frogs Day is not only the world's largest day of amphibian education, it is our best opportunity to get major publicity for Washington's disappearing frogs and to raise funds for amphibian conservation. But we need your financial support to make the Seattle Save The Frogs Day 5K a reality!
Right now we need to raise the $7,000 required to put on this Save The Frogs Day event, which if properly executed will help us raise an estimated $25,000 for SAVE THE FROGS! through corporate sponsorships, race day registrations and merchandise sales at the event.
Please make a tax-deductible donation to help us make the Seattle 5K Fun Run and Walk a reality! Even $10 helps! Anyone who donates $100 or more will be acknowledged on the 5K webpage (unless you prefer to remain anonymous!)

Does Your Environmental Group Want To Host An Informational Table at the Seattle 5K?
The Save The Frogs Day 5K will be both fun and educational. If your group would like to come out and host an informational table to educate the attendees about the great environmental work you are doing, please let us know. Tables do not need to be frog-oriented, but they do need to be environmental. You will need to provide your own table. Please contact Breanna at email@example.com to learn more about hosting a table.
SAVE THE FROGS! relies on the support of volunteers to make events like this possible. We need volunteers helping at the event, as well as people promoting and organizing the 5K in the months leading up to it. Learn more at: http://savethefrogs.com/5k#volunteers
Please help us secure the materials we need for the 5K event! We seek a Caravan 10x10' Canopy from Costco and also a 6 foot folding table from Costco (not on their website; about $50). If you are interested in giving one of these as a gift to SAVE THE FROGS! we can write you a receipt for tax-deduction purposes.
