Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic the 2021 Polar Bear Run/Walk for Autism, which usually takes place over Presidents Day Weekend in Sea Isle City, NJ, looked a little different this year. The event was canceled however to continue raising Autism Awareness and funds, a virtual event was held.
The virtual campaign is called Around the World in 80 Days. The event mascot Polar Bear left Sea Isle City, NJ on Thanksgiving with the goal of making it around the world, or 24,901 miles, and back home by Valentine’s day. Every $10 donation equals 1 mile.
EEI is honored to continue to be a sponsor of the Polar Bear Run/Walk for Autism.
