BENEFITING: The Nature Conservancy

ORGANIZER: The Nature Conservancy

EVENT: Run with Team Nature

EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2012

THE STORY:

The Nature Conservancy wrote -

Do you appreciate Africa’s majestic wildlife? Do you care about the well-being of people who, for thousands of years, have sought to live in harmony with their lands?

Ultrarunner Scott Jurek and our other Team Nature runners care enough to go the extra mile—26.2 or 13.1 of them to be exact. You can make a real differencefor Kenya’s wildlife and people by supporting any of our runners taking on the grueling Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon.

OUR CHALLENGE

Scott will join Nature Conservancy CEO Mark Tercek, Africa program staffers and volunteer runners who will represent Team Nature at the13th Annual Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon on June 30, 2012.

Does our team have what it takes to tackle one of the world’s toughest marathons? As if running under the African sun weren’t challenging enough, our team must share the ground with lions, cheetahs, elephants and many other wild animals on a mile-high course located entirely within the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

Our team members are committed to test their mettle. Now all they need is you.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

All funds raised by Team Nature members will support urgent conservation and community-development projects that bring tangible benefits to local people and wildlife in this special region of Africa.

Examples of projects funded by previous marathons:

  • Support for 13 schools servicing more than 5,000 children
  • Support for four district hospitals
  • Medical care for 300+ people injured by wildlife
  • Establishment of four community forestry programs
  • Support for game scouts and dog-tracking teams that protect endangered rhinos
  • Equipment for Kenya Wildlife Service scouts
  • Support for Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Northern Rangelands Trust, and Meru National Park

Your gift of any amount to sponsor a Team Nature runner will make a lasting difference for Kenya’s wildlife and people. And for additional incentives and updates, be sure to “Like” our TNC Africa Facebook page.
