For the 11th year running, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust
has fielded a team of dedicated supporters and conservationists
for the upcoming 2019 TCS New York City Marathon
As our biggest fundraising event each year, your involvement – whether as a member of the running team or as a passionate supporter – greatly helps us raise the funds necessary to continue our efforts within our globally-recognized community-based model for conservation, health and education in East Africa.
Interested in running with us?
Outside of being physically up to the challenge,
runners commit to raising a minimum of $5000
for the Trust through event partner CrowdRise.
Not ready to run but want to lend a hand?
Supporters can help us raise funds by joining
our CrowdRise event donation page too.
Create a profile and share it easily through social media
and email, encouraging your family,
friends and coworkers.
#RUNWILD with us to protect a special
part of East Africa.
