This past Halloween, an event was held in Denver, Colorado that set a Guinness World Record and raised money for the much endangered mountain gorilla.
The Denver Gorilla Run featured a 3.5 mile road race where all the participants wore gorilla suits. They set the record for Most People in Gorilla Suits with 1061 participants. The race also raised money for the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, which is dedicated to the protection of mountain gorillas and their habitat.
