Will you please make a donation to the Bald Head Island Conservancy, the Official Charity of BADWATER CAPE FEAR? BHIC is a leader in barrier island conservation, preservation and education. Race participants will appreciate that BHIC cares for this race route's pristine setting and its role as a very special, and successful, sea turtle nesting site. Learn more at http://www.bhic.org.
The goal of this race is raise $10,000 for the Bald Head Island Conservancy, which is enough to purchase one of the special electric UTV electric vehicles which BHIC uses to patrol the beach and care for sea turtle nesting sites.
All racers are encouraged to support BHIC and all money donated or raised by them will count towards this ambitious goal. If $10,000 or more is raised in 2014 by BADWATER runners, staff, family, and friends, the BADWATER logo will be emblazoned on the new UTV!
