THE STORY:

UPDATE: If you're donating - please go to my most current fundraiser (note: this is not it)!  

Welcome to Drew Foley's Fundraising Page for the Maasai Wildernes Conservation Trust.

To donate, just click the big orange DONATE button.

MWCT is a key partner of AECOM’s Corporate Social Responsibility program. AECOM has teamed with MWCT since 2009 in a variety of pro-bono initiatives including strategic planning, baseline inventory mapping, watershed mapping, market assessment, and fundraising support.  In 2009, AECOM runners joined Edward and Maasai runners on the MWCT team in the 2009 ING NYC Marathon, raising a team total of more than $1 million for MWCT.  This year we hope to raise as much or more, but we need your help.

This year AECOM has two employees, Drew Foley and Brook Dannemiller, who have teamed up with project organizer and actor Edward Norton and Crowdrise, to raise funds and gain worldwide support for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT), an organization dedicated to preserving the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa and promoting sustainable land practices. By coupling the promotion of sustainable and productive human land use with the simultaneous preservation of precious and necessary animal and plant habitats, the MWCT’s work is unique and valuable.

Drew Foley and Brook Dannemiller and the rest of the MWCT team will run in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon on November 6th, to raise money that will fund health, education, and conservation programs for the MWCT.  

The world increasingly relies on many traditional communities like the Maasai to protect the ecological treasures that exist within the land that they own. But the incredible wilderness and wildlife of Africa's grasslands and the famous culture of the Maasai people both face daunting threats to their long-term survival. The fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves as they work to figure out how to benefit from their incredible natural resources while preserving them.

MWCT funds and operates programs that promote sustainable economic benefits from conserving this ecosystem. Lease payments for conservancy zones, carbon credits, payments for watershed protection, sustainable eco-tourism, wildlife monitoring and security, conservation and tourism employment...these are just some of the ways MWCT is creating a cutting edge model of successful community-based conservation. And these benefits go where the community needs them most: Education and Health programs.

Thank you for your support and for spreading the word and passing this around!

Be well,

Drew Foley and Brook Dannemiller

This goes out to Frances a Maasai I was fortunate enough to spend a few weeks with. Run like the wind. This is such a good cause. 6 years ago
