BENEFITING: RHINO ARK KENYA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION INC

EVENT DATE: May 31, 2010

Louise Leakey

THE STORY:

We came in first in the ladies event, 3rd in the unmodified vehicle class but most importantly the team raised 27,000 dollars in total! If you want to help us for the 2011 event I have set up a new page for rhinorouge for Aberdares 2011 here http://www.crowdrise.com/rhinorouge2011

Thank you.
Rhino Ark, a charitable trust, working in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service set out in 1988 to build a 400 km of fence along its boundary. With the fence construction completed in 2009, Rhino Ark is now raising funds to invest in a management trust, which maintains this important fence and also provides critical support to the National Park and brings lasting benefits to the communities living adjacent to the Aberdares.

Rhino Ark raises most of its financial support through a unique and extremely unusual event , The Rhino Charge. Held at a different location each year, in a remote corner of Kenya. Teams must cross an extremely rugged and hostile landscape in the shortest distance and time. This often involves extraordinary skill and stamina on the part of the competitors and the toughest (and sexiest!) legs attract considerable spectator interest!

Rhino Rouge strongly supports the efforts of Rhino Ark to conserve the Aberdare ecosystem through the building and maintenance of this extraordinary fence. Without this electrified boundary this important resource would be lost to future generations. The Rhino Charge event is a challenge to any vehicle. It requires team work, stamina and calculation. We ladies believe in a level playing field and compete in good spirit against gentlemen. We compete each year to raise the profile of Rhino Ark and the Aberdares locally and internationally.
