Event: Royal Parks Half Marathon 2019, on 13 October 2019
We work on Kenya's front line to protect threatened wildlife and habitats


On 13th October 2019, I will be running 13.1 miles in the Royal Parks Half Marathon in aid of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust - a charity that’s dedicated to the protection and preservation of Kenya’s wildlife. At the heart of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the pioneering Orphans’ Project that has successfully hand-raised over 230 orphaned elephants, gradually reintroducing them into the wild where they belong! The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust doesn’t just rehabilitate orphaned elephants, they also operate twelve De-Snaring Teams and five Mobile Veterinary Units, as well as an Aerial Surveillance team that work tirelessly, around the clock, to provide protection to all wildlife. 

I have always loved elephants and was lucky enough to visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary in Nairobi on a trip to Kenya in 2017. I was so inspired by the work being done to help reintroduce the elephants into the wild and I am proud to be running on their behalf.

This is how your donation can make a difference: 

•£15 - could keep an orphan baby elephant warm with a lined blanket

•£20 - could feed a baby elephant with special milk formula for a day

•£55 - could fund an Anti-Poaching Team for a day, keeping wildlife safe from snares and poachers

•£200 - could fund a Mobile Veterinary Unit for two days, treating all kinds of injured wildlife

•£900 - could provide first class care for an orphaned baby elephant for one month

Thank you so much for your support. With your help, we can save more wild lives!
