Vitol is sending a team of runners to the 17th annual Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya on Saturday, June 24th, 2017. Fundraising efforts for the race will benefit Tusk Trust. Tusk Trust supports communities in Africa, working to alleviate poverty and support education , as well as protecting wildlife. Wildlife conservation is one of Tusk's main objectives, particularly for threatened species including elephant, rhino, cheetah, chimpanzee, mountain and lowland gorilla, African wild dog, and various others. You can read more about the important work Tusk does for communities in Africa at www.tusk.org. Our goal is to raise $2,000 per runner for the three runners from the Houston Vitol office, and we would love your support! Any amount is much appreciated.
