I'm running the safaricom half marathon in Lewa Nairobi in June. While I am paying all my own costs (registration, travel, accommodations) I am required to fund raise $2000 CAD in support of The Lewa Wild Life Conservatory. I am hoping you can help me out! The impact of the event has been huge and the benefits are very tangible. Since its inception, the event has raised over $5 million - last year's race alone raised $640,000. Tusk and Lewa have always shared a common goal to use wildlife conservation as a catalyst to alleviate poverty, reduce conflict, and improve education and livelihoods in rural areas rich in biodiversity. The Safaricom Marathon is unique and must not be viewed like the many City marathons held around the world.
