This Tuesday, three Maasai from Kuku Group Ranch left Kenya for the United States. Why? After months of training, Parashi Ntanin, Martin Sunte, and Samson Parashina are only about a week away from running in the New York City Marathon! These three Maasai runners are part of a large team, which also includes actor Edward Norton and Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust founder and Executive Director Luca Belpietro, that will run 26.2 miles to raise money for MWCT.
So far, the runners have raised more than US$360,000. Can you help us raise more? Please sponsor one of our runners! To learn more, visit the Maasai Marathon website or follow Edward Norton’s training on Twitter. We will post more updates as the marathon continues to approach.
