THE STORY:

I am running in the 2015 Safaricom Half Marathon at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya on June 27.  Over 1,200 runners from over 20 countries will run in the wildlife reserve to raise funds for the Conservancy and the Tusk Trust, for programs promoting wildlife conservation, community development and education in Kenya.  Since the marathon began in 2000, runners from around the world have raised nearly $5 million for conservation and education programs.  I'm hoping you can help with your support this year.

I'm excited about my upcoming adventure.  The course covers 13 miles of savannah, riverbanks and acacia woodlands in a preserve dedicated to protecting wildlife, including elephants and critically endangered rhinos.  It won't be easy.  The race is over dirt roads at an elevation of over a mile, with Mount Kenya as a backdrop.

This race will be more than an adventure for me.  It has also become an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution, at a time when the world needs to show Kenya and Kenyans that they they stand behind them.

Recent events in Kenya have raised the stakes.  It is no secret that ivory buys guns.  Others fund their attacks through illegal logging, destroying miles of forest and woodland to generate millions from black market lumber and charcoal.  Now is the time for the world to show that we are all Kenyans, and we can do it with more than hashtags and instagram posts.
