Please Help Us Run for Lions

This Saturday, May 4th, Ewaso Lions is holding our 4th annual Running for Lions half marathon in Samburu. We are so excited to see the community come together under the banner of lion conservation.

We need your help to raise $500 for the event. It’s a small bit of money for a huge positive community event.

This year there will be two races: a 21km half marathon for elders and warriors, and a 7km race for women (the community requested to separate races for men and women). The races take place in the stunning Westgate Community Conservancy just west of Samburu National Reserve, here in northern Kenya. We are sponsoring the race this year with Sasaab Lodge, Westgate Conservancy, and Carter Safaris.

As usual, the prizes consist of goats!

Life in Samburu is hard — security issues, human-wildlife conflict, drought — so Running for Lions offers people a day to come together, have fun, and raise awareness about the positive benefits of lions and wildlife. Please help us make this year’s race the best yet.

Please support the race by making a donation through the link below. We only need $500 for the event. Any amount will help!

    I’m just in a process of submitting a new monthly donation for Ewaso Lions. Hope you can get all the help you need.

    Great initiative!
