Since its conception four years ago, 2020 will mark the fifth year since the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust launched its first Durrell Challenge.
Sharing his excitement to participate once again, The Witcher star took to Instagram to announce the news and his involvement once again with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
Henry Cavill on joining the Durrell Challenge 2020:
Cavill who serves as the global ambassador for the trust will return for the challenge once again as a runner. The actor has always shared his passion for saving animals and signed up to be an ambassador for Durrell in 2014.
In 2015, Superman became Batman. Yes, you’re reading it correctly. The British actor became a father to one of the most endangered species on the planet as he adopted a Livingstone’s fruit bat. Cavill named the bat Ben.
What is The Durrell Challenge?
The said challenge takes on a 13K road race that is held in Jersey, Channel Islands, and includes other fun festivities along with the race to raise funds for preserving the wildlife.
The challenge that normally sees over 700 runners and entrants from 21 countries this time around host limited runners only in accordance with the safety and health guidelines owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, fans, activists, and anybody who wishes to join the challenge can do so virtually and participate in the good cause to raise awareness and funds.
VIP virtual runners will receive the same benefit as the 13K runners and also a signed picture from the global ambassador and Superman himself, Henry Cavill. The runners will also receive a guaranteed VIP registration for the next year!
Durrell managed to raise £60,000 at its 60th anniversary last year.
