The park, at Branton, near Doncaster, is home to four polar bears who are favourites with visitors who flock to the ten-acre Project Polar reserve, which recently won a coveted gold award.
It is at the centre of the global effort to save the species and the Foundation has already raised more than £40,000 to support projects in the wild.
“We are hoping people get behind this virtual 30K and help us raise funds from projects that are doing so much to help save these animals,” added Mrs Williams.
“Simply signing up to the challenge will help to educate others on the cause, sometimes a little bit of knowledge goes a long way”
“The event will also help us spread the word about the danger to polar bears and reveal some of the exciting projects the Foundation has funded.”
Every participant in the The Run for Wildlife virtual 30K will have 30 days to complete the challenge, from March 30th until April 29th and will receive a commemorative t-shirt.
