THE STORY:

June 2012, I was lucky enough to have the incredible opportuntiy to travel to Kenya to participate in the Safaricom Marathon.  I ran the half marathon, and have decided to take on a greater challenge this year and run a full marathon.  While the course in London will be much flatter than in Africa, I am still nervous about the road ahead - 26.2 miles will not be easy.  The charity that I'm running for is called Tusk.  It's an amazing charity that helps support education & conservation throughout Africa.  Having seen first hand the work that Tusk's funds have gone towards, I can assure you that your kind donations are going to truly make the lives of others better.  Please see the information on Tusk below. The people and animals who reside on the conservation areas equally benefit from your support, and are a great example of how all things can live together on this earth in harmony.  If you haven't visited Africa yet, I highly recommend that you do, it's a life changing experience.

Your support will go a very long way...much longer than just 26.2 miles.

Tusk currently provides financial, logistical and practical support for a large portfolio of field projects spread across 18 African countries. This support includes the purchase of vehicles, aircraft, radio equipment, as well as the construction of primary and secondary schools, clinics, water improvement schemes, roads, buildings, bridges and airstrips, in addition to helping to cover the direct costs of game scouts and wildlife management.

The charity views conservation as a long term investment, relying upon a partnership with key individuals and organizations that have a proven track record in conservation. It is an approach, which has allowed Tusk to fully maximize its investment into the field whilst minimizing its core operational and administrative costs. Since inception, Tusk has invested on average between 75-80% of net funds raised into the field.
