|Our FABULOUS TOP 10to4 Fundraisers and partners
This year we were BLOWN AWAY by the amount of support we received for Mount Kenya Trust at the 10to4 Mountain Bike Challenge. This is our premier fundraising event that raises money for all of the gaps in our work. Look how many partners we had below! And a quick note on our top two fundraisers below.
The JASPER HORWOOD MEMORIAL PRIZE – Top Child Fundraiser
Aurora Benham (Age 6) rode in the Mini 10to4 and raised nearly USD $2,000
When asked about how she raised the money, Aurora said
“I raised money by making a video and riding my bike. I also made cupcakes and sold them to neighbours, and I even put them in the oven and did all the washing up myself”.
The PAUL SHERWEN MEMORIAL PRIZE – Top Adult Fundraiser(s)
Hitesh Shah and Amardeep Jandu (Age – undisclosed!) Every season the pair are on the mountain with their family and friends planting at Marania Forest. The Sukuma Twende Trust (Hitesh and Amardeep’s charity) have raised over USD $8,000 and they aim to plant 50,000 trees in the April rainy season, and are hoping to raise funds for another 50,000 trees for the next planting in October. What a dynamic team!
