BENEFITING: Tusk

EVENT: TUSK Safaricom Marathon 2012

EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2012

THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting our Safaricom Marathon fundraising website! 

On June 30, 2012 Travis and Bret (Dad), along with great friend Miles Kirby (who gave us the idea), and with the support of our families, competed in the Safaricom Mathon, run at 5,500 feet in the heart of Kenya’s Lewa Wildlife Sanctuary.  We hoped to raise at least $5,000 for the Tusk Trust, and, thanks to our generous and many donors, the tally to date is over $6,000!  We also came home with a love for Kenya, its incredible resources, and her wonderful people.

WHY IT MATTERS:

Tusk was established in response to an urgent need to halt the decline in Africa’s natural heritage and find a way to combine the interests of people and wildlife alike.  Its mission is to protect wildlife, support communities, & promote education. 

Living in the U.S., it is easy to forget what sorts of challenges African nations face.  Tusk has projects in 17 African nations, protecting species like the black rhino and giant sable antelope.  Many projects Tusk funds become self-sustaining and managed by local residents.  Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has raised over $25 million for a wide range of projects which not only work to protect wildlife, but also alleviate poverty, through sustainable development and education in rural communities.  You can check Tusk out at www.tusk.org.

BUT, BEFORE YOU GO ….

There is still time to donate to Tusk Trust.  100% of the money you give will go directly to supporting its mission.  We’d be very grateful if you’d support Tusk with a donation.  If you are wondering what amount is appropriate, you might consider the following:

- $76 sends one child to a 4-day camp to learn about conservation.

- $200 provides fuel for a health clinic ambulance.

- $350 supports two beach clean-up days by school children.

- $500 supports a community tree nursery.

- Saving a Black Rhino? …. priceless!

To donate, simply click on the red "DONATE" button on the right, follow the simple instructions, and look for your thank-you note soon!  If you prefer to send a check, please make it out to "TUSK USA", write "Bret/Travis Vicary--Marathon" in the memo line, and send it off to:  Tusk USA, 40 East 94th St., New York, NY 10128.

Thank you for making a difference for the communities and natural resources of Africa!

…. Travis & Bret
