At Yes.Fit, we love it when we can create a race, and pair the theme with a non-profit.
Dolphin Discovery virtual race is just that. It's a virtual race that takes place in Florida. While Florida is home to an array of diverse wildlife, one of the biggest perks of visiting the Sunshine State is seeing dolphins in their natural habitat.
Florida’s coastal waters are home to thousands of wild dolphins and there is no better place to get an up-close look at these charismatic creatures.
Our Dolphin Discovery race starts at the Mote Marine Aquarium in Sarasota and takes us to the Clearwater Aquarium, home to Winter, one of the most famous dolphins in the world thanks to the movie ‘Dolphin Tale’.
A portion of the proceeds of this virtual race goes towards the Dolphin Research Center, a nonprofit 501(c)3 marine mammal education and research facility
Dolphin Research Center was founded as a nonprofit corporation in 1984 to ensure the dolphins had a home there for life, and in doing so to build a unique education and research facility.
The bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions presently living there provide a wide range of personalities and backgrounds.
Over half of the animals were born at the Center, while the other members have either come from other facilities or were rescued, rehabilitated, and deemed unreleasable back into the wild by the Government and now have a forever home at Dolphin Research Center.
Yes.Fit was so honored to recently get a message from the Dolphin Research Center, thanking our community for all it has done to bring awareness and donations to these beautiful creatures. Take a look!
