There are very few opportunities in life to see 500 people dressed in gorilla suits, so make sure you dont miss one today when the fifth annual Denver Gorilla Run takes place. This charity event, which raises funding and awareness for the plight of the worlds few remaining mountain gorillas, is a 5.6K race that participants can walk, run, skateboard or otherwise move through. The one requirement is that you have to wear your gorilla suit, says Frank Keesling, the Mountain Gorilla Conser-vation Funds vice president.
The race, which starts and finishes at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, 1634 18th Street, begins at 11 a.m., but come early to watch the apes check in and to catch the Most Creative Gorilla contest. Theres no cost to watch, but donations are welcome. Find more information at www.denvergorillarun.com or call 720-244-9938 for more information and to donate or participate.
