    London Marathon

    • Conservation has always been an lifelong importance to me, . When I was given the opportunity to run for the charity Tusk Trust it impossible to turn down, Running in the Kenyan and London marathon was one way in helping spread awarness on the on going issues against animal cureltiy and poaching. It is a strong belief of mine that it our responsibility to help maintain this earth in most humane and efficient manner. After the Marathon I was honoured to be invited to join the Young Tusk Committee, It is our role to organise events to help inform on the charities on going projects, raise money and spread awareness of the issues of the on going battle against poaching. . http://www.tusk.org/index/uk
