THE STORY:

I am running in the LA marathon to raise money to stop the South African Rhinos from becoming extinct at the hands of poachers. The teams on the ground in the bush need equipment and resources to put a stop to the insanity.Over 54 rhinos have already been killed this  year alone, and there will surely be more if the world doesn't act.

Basically, the poachers kill the rhinos,hack off their horns to sell the to overseas blackmarkets, often leaving the orphaned calves to fend for themseleves. The horn is used for medicinal purposes and ailments for which there are alternative treaments. It makes no sense to hunt a species into extinction when there is no scientific proof that the horn has ay curative properties.

Please donate today and help the brave people on the front lines stop this before it is too late.
