Mercy College was a sponsor for the Wildlife Conservation Society’s ninth Run for the Wild 5k/Family Fun Run held at the Bronx Zoo. Chief Advancement Officer Bernadette Wade participated in the opening ceremony and highlighted the importance of lifelong learning and education as something the Wildlife Conservation Society and Mercy College have in common.


Throughout the day alumni and Bronx Zoo visitors stopped by the College’s sponsor table for giveaways and information on Mercy College. More than 5,000 runners and walkers participated in the race, including five teams associated with Mercy College. Mercy College teams raised the most out of the race’s sponsors with a combined $2,775 in donations.
