THE STORY:

I am one of 10 official runners to run the 2011 New York City Marathon to fundraise for Edward Norton and the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.

In 2009, 30 runners, including Edward Norton, ran the New York Marathon to raise money for the MWCT and the campaign was a success…they raised over $1.2 million. The money raised is used to protect the legendary ecosystems and astounding biodiversity of East Africa through conservation that directly benefits local Maasai communities.

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.

That's what MWCT is all about...a pioneering partnership between professional conservationists and dynamic young Maasai leaders to show that the Maasai community can thrive, not just survive, by managing their ecosystem wisely.

Specifically, here are some ways your donation will positively impact the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust:

  • $1/mile will pay for the boarding of a game scout for 1 month, ensuring protection of lions and rhinos against poachers (Your Total Donation = $26 ).
  • $1/mile will pay the salary of a teacher for 3 days at MWCT (Your Total Donation = $26).
  • $5/mile will pay the salary of one Simba scout for 1 month to help protect lions from being killed by poachers (Your Total Donation = $130).
  • $10/mile will pay the salary of a game scout for 1 month (Your Total Donation = $260).
  • $20/mile will buy a radio for a game scout to track wildlife poachers (Your Total Donation = $520)

All donations are greatly appreciated.
