Our fourth event of 2018 was the Half-Giant Half Marathon, dedicated with love to the gamekeeper with a huge presence and an equally huge heart.

Being concerned as we all are about the care of magical creatures, our two charity partners for this event were Toucan Rescue Ranch, and Goats of Anarchy.

Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) focuses on the care, rehabilitation and study of Costa Rican wildlife including toucans, owls and sloths! TRR receives and cares for confiscated, sick and injured animals and then gives them a loving home with the goal of providing appropriate medical treatment, rehabilitation and then, when possible, returning them to their natural environment. HRC’s goal was to fully fund a brand new sloth rescue/reception facility in northern Costa Rica.

Goats of Anarchy (GOA) is the passion of Leanne Lauricella, who left behind a successful career in New York City and has now created a sanctuary for goats with special needs, teaching the world acceptance and inclusion and inspiring others to “fight like a goat”! Specifically, HRC funded critical fencing and other important infrastructure improvements at GOA’s new facility in New Jersey.
