Ultramarathon 2021, Running for a Cause
Updated: Apr 20, 2022
Environmental conservation is an umbrella within our company that defines anything we do to protect our planet and conserve its natural resources so that every living thing can have an improved quality of life. At Eezy group, we know that there is much to do when it comes to rebuilding and protecting what’s left of natural resources and the biodiversity within our ecosystems.
On 4th December we participated in the UltraMARAthon, an annual footrace held at the northern Maasai Mara that sees participants run through several conservancies within the Mara. Within the group, we had a relay team that took part and ensured that our contribution was felt. The race saw 200 participants from Kenya and beyond take part.
Funds raised will be channeled towards three key initiatives including the Mara Elephant project that seeks to recruit, train and deploy rangers to curb elephant poaching and human-wildlife conflict. It will also support rangers in the conservancies in terms of the provision of uniforms, equipment, and administration. It will also help in the expansion of a women’s health center that provides prenatal/postnatal care, family planning education, and services - the center will assist 50 to 60 women in childbirth each month. We are committed to continuing to support the UltraMARAthon and to ensure responsible management of the environment and its resources for present and future generations.
