EVENT DATE: Jun 29, 2013
As you probably know, this year, I will be taking part in the Safaricom Marathon in Kenya on June 29th as part of a 12 member team sponsored by my employer, BlackRock, and together we'll be raising money for an organization called Tusk Trust.
Tusk Trust, which is a U.K. based charity that is focused on conservation and education in Africa and one that BlackRock works closely with. The funds that have been raised in the past have helped, among other things, to build two new schools and two new water projects in the Samburu area of Kenya. It has also helped in conservation efforts and anti-poaching efforts.
We are currently in our 7th year of participating in the Safaricom Marathon and are approaching $1million dollars raised with 85% of the all the money raised spent in the field on these types of projects. I’d be incredibly grateful if you would consider supporting me and by making a contribution and helping us achieve out $1 million goal this year.
