THE STORY:

Running the NY marathon to raise money for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. Its a great cause, and my daughters will think I'm cool too, if I raise the money...

 

Maasai Wilderness Conservation Fund wrote -

This year, for the 2012 New York City Marathon, MWCT is thrilled to field another amazing and official team in the NYC Marathon! Any support you can give our 'Maasai Marathoners' by sponsoring their valiant 26 mile run on behalf of the work of MWCT is hugely appreciated. Meet our runners below and back your favorite one or you can contribute to the whole team just by clicking the "Donate" button on the right. 

The money we raise 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.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

Asche`oleing! (Maa for thanks a lot!)
