"I had such a great time at the Great Gorilla Run. It was a perfect day. The atmosphere was brilliant, as was the turn-out and the crazy costumes. The Great Gorilla Run really does put the 'fun' into fun run. It was a success at every level"
Adam Garcia, Actor

Run Round Up
We did it again!
The Great Gorilla Run 2015 was a roaring success once again! Hundreds of gorillas took to the streets of London to raise money for The Gorilla Organization. The 12th annual Great Gorilla Run has so far raised over £65,000 with donations still being taken until November 2015.
The money raised will allow the Gorilla Organization to continue its groundbreaking community conservation, education and development projects in Africa.
The Gorilla Organization would like to thank every one of our Great Gorilla Runners for taking part this year and for all your fundraising efforts. Thanks also to all our fantastic volunteers who gave up their Saturday to come and make the event what it was and help with the success of another Great Gorilla Run.
