I was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya and have lived in the U.S. for half my life. I consider myself a citizen of both countries and love the perspectives I get from both places.
One of my missions in life is to be a fellow traveler with others: both in terms of hearing others stories (as a friend, husband, family member and psychologist) and, in taking people to one of my favorite places in the world, Kenya.
As I travel, I hope to provide a positive impact to others and not just take from my surroundings. When I returned to Kenya after many years absent, I was so inspired by all the changes I saw, all the hope and hard work of the people there. I vowed to be part of the growth of Kenya in one way or another, by supporting the communities, businesses and people there.
What I love about the Safaricom Lewa Marathon, besides the inherent beauty and challenge of running there, is that it is a fundraiser that supports Tusk Trust a non-profit organization that supports wildlife conservation and promotes education while supporting the local communities that live there.
I hope I get the chance to show everyone Kenya! It has changed my life in tremendous ways and I know it will do the same for you.
So please join me as I raise funds to support Tusk Trust. We need $1500 minimum per person to run in the marathon and support the mission of tusk.org. You can contribute by donating any amount, or by joining our team at www.runinkenya.com.
Thanks so much,
