Dear Family & Friends,
We have been presented the opportunity to partake in the Tusk’s Safaricom Marathon at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. With this opportunity we have the chance to not only run our first half marathon, but to improve the lives of the surrounding communities, both human and wildlife. The Lewa Marathon requires each international participant to fundraise $2,025. That donation to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy will be distributed to cover ranger salaries, anti-poaching technology, environmental education programs for local schools, and teacher salaries and housing.
The marathon is on June 29th, 2019 and fundraising must be complete by April 30th. With your help and generosity, we will be able to master our first half marathon, meet our fundraising requirements, and most important, help others. Even the smallest of contributions will help reach our goal. Whatever is left for fundraising, we are prepared to cover. Regardless, thank you all for the unconditional love and support that you have given us. It drives us to push ourselves and make the differences that matter.
The future of wildlife is dependent on the people that live alongside of it. We are excited to be advocates for this cause. We love you all and could not be more thankful for you.
- Ben & Courtney
