Prince George, DeBordieu and Hobcaw SCUTE volunteers are pleased to announce that our first 5K event, The SCUTE Loop, raised $5650 for the SC Aquarium’s Sea Turtle Care Center!! Due to the pandemic and the forced closure of the facility, staff had to be cut by 25%. The Care Center put out the news they may no longer be able to accept sick and injured sea turtles that strand on SC beaches: https://scaquarium.org/sea-turtle-care-center/. Volunteer projects were enlisted to help raise funds to keep the doors open. Our 5K SCUTE Loop was accomplished either virtually or on Saturday, Oct. 10. We had 106 participants who either paid a registration fee or made generous donations!
Many thanks to our volunteers, participants, donors, the DCCA Publicity Committee and especially Susan Davis who organized this fun event! See the 10-10 post and 2020 Photo Gallery for photos from the SCUTE Loop.
