The Tuxedo Trot: Run for the Penguins is a fun, family-friendly event created by the Greensboro Science Center's Conservation Committee to raise funds for endangered African penguins. The birds' population has declined dramatically in the past 10 years and there is an urgent need for your help. 100% of profits go directly to efforts to save these penguins.
