The Zoological Society of New Jersey is bringing back our Turtle Trot to support Essex County Turtle Back Zoo’s animal welfare program. Turtle Trot is a family friendly activity to encourage people to stay fit and inspired! This program unites us in support of vital causes to keep both animals and humans safe, healthy, and happy.
Once registration is completed, participants will record daily step counts to achieve a goal of their choice to be completed by the end of the campaign. These goals range from a 5K to an ultra-marathon completed over the life of the campaign. Steps are calculated by integrations with today’s most popular smartphones, watches, and apps. Participants are encouraged to raise funds in association with challenge achievements. You can complete your fitness activity anywhere - visit to the zoo, circle the South Mountain Reservation, trot around your neighborhood or even on a treadmill!
The Zoological Society of New Jersey is the non-profit arm of Essex County Turtle Back Zoo. Proceeds support animal welfare and conservation efforts.
