Wildlife Rescue Run & Walk

When: July 29, 2017
Where: Alaska SeaLife Center
The last Saturday in July gives runners and walkers alike a chance to support the Wildlife Response Program by participating in the 5K Wildlife Rescue Run & Walk. The course starts and finishes at Alaska SeaLife Center and is mostly level. Alaska SeaLife Center is Alaska's only marine mammal rehabilitation facility, and its Wildlife Response Program cares for many species of stranded and injured marine birds and mammals. The Wildlife Response Program depends upon financial support from the community for its continuing efforts to treat the animals, and all proceeds from the race benefit the program and the animals in its care. Register today, the entry fee includes a t-shirt and admission to Alaska SeaLife Center on race day.  Can't be in Seward on race day? Sign up to be a Virtual Runner and show your support from afar.



Alaska Marine Gala

When: February 3, 2018
Where: Dena'ina Center
Each February the Alaska SeaLife Center hosts the annual Alaska Marine Gala at the Dena'ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska. This black tie affair with an ocean blue flair promises a night of food, fun, and fundraising. Cocktails and a silent auction kick off the night, followed by dinner, the Alaska Ocean Leadership Awards, a live auction, and live music.
