All proceeds are used to ensure that humanitarian animals receive the best possible care. Zorna added that the race has grown this year with around 500 riders participating.
“This one event is our biggest fundraiser,” Zorna said. “From about $30,000 to the end of this one event of his, he raised $40,000.”
Zorna also encourages everyone to volunteer their time or reach out to get a pet of their own.
“I love the animals and I love the staff. “I love animals. They are what drives me. I would come here at seven in the morning and stay until midnight to clean everything up.”
