Meet our runner Rollo Wood!
Unfortunately the Paris marathon was cancelled for obvious reasons, but Kasanka’s need for funds has not ended. With the lack of tourism, this money is needed more than ever.
I have luckily found myself a place on the London Remote Marathon on the 4th October , this is a good 6 months after my original marathon date, so it’s fair to say that keeping up training has been tough! I am still aiming for that 4hr time, running from Bath to Bristol.
“It’s been a few years since I first went to Kasanka as a volunteer, but the great memories I took away have not faded. The dedication of the individuals involved is clear to see, and yet there will always be constraints through funding, so I have always thought of a way to raise some funds for the charity. I’m surprising myself now to say that I’ve signed up to run the Paris Marathon on October 18th 2020, I had only run for about 20 minutes in a row before I started training! It’s going to be painful but l know that every step taken will raise much needed funds to support this relatively small organisation and make a huge difference. African wildlife has always played a huge part in my life, and it seems like no surprise that I ended up in the wildlife film industry. It’s organisations like the Kasanka Trust that are on the frontlines ensuring that the local biodiversity remains in tip top shape. Especially in Kasanka National Park where they host the largest mammal migration on earth, google it!! Thank you. Rollo”.
