Lettura took Anthony for a run around the safari camp one day and shared that he loved to run. Edwards a basic recreational runner had an idea that it would be great to give Lettura the opportunity to run in the New York City Marathon. Not to win the race but like thousands of other runners to participate.

With one week to go before the marathon they all went to New York and explored the city and life in the urban jungle.
