'May the Votes' Be Ever in Your Favor :)

Hi Drew! I hope May is treating you well!!!

We wanted to see if you're in the neighborhood to bring PURE JOY to a very deserving child's life... A $20 donation will provide a birthday celebration and cake for one of our 25 students- an experience they have NEVER HAD in their life. Can you imagine never getting to celebrate your special day and not ever eating a piece of cake in your entire life? Well, either can us, so we want to change that for our extremely hard working students!

Donate $20 to provide the once in a lifetime memory for one of our students, and we'll provide you a picture of the event- something you can cherish forever as well :)

Cheers and Happy Crowdrising,
Megan + Imagine Scholar Team

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 08, 2011
Stuff About Me:

Thank you for visiting Drew Foley’s Profile Page.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  I'm thrilled to be training again for the New York City ING Marathon. In 2011, I ran the NYC Marathon and raised nearly $9,000 for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT). I finished the marathon and was honored to be a part of something so special. I got involved with the MWCT through my company, which does pro bono work for the MWCT. In 2012, my company sent me to Kenya to work with the Maasai people and the MWCT on many ecological issues, including water shortages and disease. I was awestruck on how effective the money I raised had directly impacted the lives of the MWCT. Moreover, I was excited to raise more money and awareness to help the MWCT after talking with the Maasai people and the leaders of the MWCT. 

With that said, I am running the 2013 NYC Marathon to raise money for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT). My goal is to raise $6,000 to help support the MWCT. To DONATE to my fundraiser just click the big orange DONATE button on the right side of this page.  You can also go to Drew Foley’s Fundraising Page for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust and click the orange DONATE button. When you donate, there is a small service charge and an optional service charge.  Please feel free to opt out of the optional one.

ABOUT ME: I am an Ecologist at AECOM, focusing my efforts on Aquatic Ecology. Specifically, I work on wetlands, rivers, lakes, streams, estuaries, and the marine environment. I primarly conduct habitat assessments, but also do a myriad of things. I'm a regular runner, backpacker, hiker, and have played soccer my whole life I love dogs and helping others. An while I consider myself athletic, I never thought I would run a marathon but in 2011, I did just that and in my opinion, it was a success.  It was a lot of work to train and raise money, but it was all worth it when I met the Maasai people and exchanged greetings with the MWCT people that work very hard to help preserve the habitat and ecosystem of Eastern Kenya.

The overall mission of the MWCT is to support the preservation of biodiversity within the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa by promoting conservation, education, youth development, and health services within the Maasai community. The MWCT is unique because they couple the promotion of sustainable and productive human land use with the simultaneous preservation of precious and necessary animal and plant habitats making the MWCT’s work sustainable and valuable.

My company, AECOM, has been a key partner with MWCT for several years in a variety of pro-bono initiatives including strategic planning, baseline inventory mapping, watershed mapping, market assessment and fundraising support. AECOM continues to team up with the MWCT to raise funds and gain worldwide support for the MWCT and I’m excited to be a part of all of it again.  This year will be even more amazing because AECOM is sponsoring the first ever Maasai Olympic Champion to fly over to NYC and run the NYC Marathon with us, as part of the MWCT Team.

My goal is to raise $6,000, all proceeds go directly to help the MWCT. Anything you can donate, whether it’s $5 or $500, will be put towards achieving this goal. Every donation counts. If you donate more than $100, please contact me directly, and I will send you a special t-shirt.

Specifically, here are some ways your donation will positively impact the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust:

​​·        If you donate $26, you will pay for the boarding of a game scout for 1 month, ensuring protection of lions and rhinos against poachers.

·        If you donate $26, you will pay the salary of a teacher for 3 days at MWCT.

·        If you donate $130, you will pay the salary of one Simba scout for 1 month to help protect lions from being killed by poachers.

·        If you donate $260, you will pay the salary of a game scout for 1 month.

·        If you donate $520, you will buy a radio for a game scout to track wildlife poachers.

To DONATE to my fundraiser just click the big orange DONATE button on the right side of this page.  You can also go to Drew Foley’s Fundraising Page for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust and click the orange DONATE button.

Thank you for sponsoring me to help continue the great work that MWCT do to preserve biodiversity. They are a model for us all.
