THE STORY:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page...Wow, I'm running in the 2011 ING NYC Marathon. Why? First it was a bucket list thing, then I realized that I could run for a great cause. So, here I am...I have set a goal of raising $6K for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. My good friend, Edward Norton (who is a board member) introduced me to the organization and I knew I had to join in. 

The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) works to protect the legendary ecosystems and astounding biodiversity of East Africa through conservation that directly benefits local Maasai communities.

The world increasingly relies on many traditional communities like the Maasai to protect the ecological treasures that exist within the land that they own. But the incredible wilderness and wildlife of Africa's grasslands and the famous culture of the Maasai people both face daunting threats to their long-term survival. The fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves as they work to figure out how to benefit from their incredible natural resources while preserving them.

That's what MWCT is all about...a pioneering partnership between professional conservationists and dynamic young Maasai leaders to show that the Maasai community can thrive, not just survive, by managing their ecosystem wisely.  I sincerely hope it becomes a model for sustainability, and this is important for our world ! 

All donations are greatly appreciated - and come back to this page from time to time...I'll update my progress (and pain). 

To donate just click the big orange DONATE button.

Asche`oleing! (Maa for thanks a lot!)
