Conquer the Bridge with team Yes We Peli-CAN!

The Bird Rescue 2018 runners team Yes We Peli-CAN!

Join the Bird Rescue team Yes We Peli-CAN! as we run/walk over the iconic Vincent Thomas Bridge at the Conquer the Bridge 2019 to raise awareness about aquatic birds in the Los Angeles Port area and fundraise to support our work. The event is on Labor Day, September 2nd.

The Vincent Thomas Bridge

Last year, our inaugural team drew in more than 40 participants from Bird Rescue staff, volunteers, friends, family and supporters. Together we raised more than $12,000 leading up to race day, far surpassing our $10,000 goal. Participants had a wonderful time joining in with the local community to take on this 8.5 K course while sharing their love of birds and nature.

This year, we look forward to once again Conquering the Bridge as Team Yes We Peli-CAN! and we would love to have you join us! The details for the 11th Annual Conquer the Bridge Race are as follows:

Date: Sept, 2, 2019
