Jurassic Extreme Returns to Coreluv’s Defend The Orphan 5K Run/Walk

Walking Dinosaurs for Running Events

Jurassic Extreme was invited to the 3rd Annual DTO5K Run/Walk held by Coreluv International and their team on Saturday, November 18th for the second year in a row. The Coreluv, Defend the Orphan Foundation partners with communities and orphanages around the world providing basic essential needs such as, clean water, proper food, healthcare, and job skills to orphans in need. We consider it a special honor to be involved with events such as these that bring awareness to global issues. Rocco and Riley had to wake up bright and early for this one as we didn’t want to miss the start of the races.

When we arrived, the racers were already stretching, so our walking dinosaur Rocco rushed towards the crowd to make sure he wasn’t left out in the warm-up. Since there were two races, one for the kids and another for the adults, we knew it was going to be a busy morning.

Rocco made sure he was at the start line with the kids to give them the extra motivation they needed to do their best and have fun. Everyone got a kick out of having Rocco run with them, even if he didn’t last too long in the race. Now when it came to the adult race, Rocco decided to show his support on the sidelines as not to get in the way of the serious racers. However, it was clear that he was stealing some of their thunder as he waited for everyone to cross the finish line. What can we say? That’s the type of frenzy our walking dinosaurs cause.

The party didn’t stop there! Rocco & Riley hung out and joined in the after-race festivities as well, dancing as the DJ’s spun their music, walking around posing for pictures and letting everyone show them some love. They even hijacked the Photo booth for a picture or two.

Toddler Tuesday: We Are the Dinosaurs Jurassic Extreme Edition

Discovery Green Toddler Tuesdays are kind of a big deal here in Houston and Jurassic Extreme has been lucky enough to be a part of this event twice now. Whenever our walking dinosaurs get invited here, they do their “Happy Dance” because it’s one of their favorite spots!!!! We’ve been a part of numerous Discovery Green events for the last few years and we truly enjoy it.

 

 

On this Tuesday, you could see the line of toddlers waiting to see our dinosaurs with their parents for miles. Apparently, they started waiting for us before we arrived. Rocco took center stage for his photo ops with the kids. It was difficult sometimes to keep the kids out of the way while taking the photos because they were so in awe they just wanted to be near them. Most of our toddlers were brave boys and girls and  hugged our dinosaurs, while others took a while to warm up to them. The awesome event staff helped us keep the line moving smoothly and even helped taking pictures for all the parents. After a short break, we brought Riley out, so all the girls could feel the Girl Power having a female dinosaur in the picture with them. However, that caused a whole new frenzy because now the kids wanted another picture with Riley.

 

 

Jurassic Extreme was the star of this event and we don’t mind it one bit. We even stayed a little longer because Rocco and Remy love the kids and Discovery Green made sure every toddler got their photo! I highly recommend keeping up with Discovery Green and their calendar of events, because the odds are we will be there again in the future. Whether it’s Rocco, Remy, Riley, Rocket, Rocket-X, Ramsey or Razor they always enjoy their fun filled events! Until next time!
