Team UBS is running wild for a great cause, participating in the Safaricom Marathon (regarded as one of the toughest marathons in the world) raising funds to support the efforts of the Tusk Organization. Tusk supports more than 50 field projects in 18 African countries that not only work to protect wildlife, but also help to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside the wildlife.
Please support Chris, David, and Jeanne as they prepare for this incredible run through the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy alongside the amazing animals Tusk works to protect.
"Since the event was first held in 2000 it has gone on to generate more than £5m to help wildlife and support rural communities throughout Kenya. The Safaricom Marathon in Lewa transform the lives of the communities it serves. It has given them access to health, clean water and education, and we are motivated to continue supporting the marathon because we have seen the impact on over 500,000 lives that are touched through the various initiatives.”
