Saturday, October 3rd, 2020

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the world’s biggest single day fundraising event. Part of the World Marathon Majors, 2020 see’s the 40th edition of the race.

With the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in order to protect the public and the runners, the Virgin Money Giving London Marathon will go virtual on October the 4th. Kasanka Trust could only secure one place in the Charity run, which will be represented by Rollo Woods. Max Brown however has kindly offered to run to continue raising funds!  

These funds will support our mission in conserving wildlife, securing the future of biodiversity of the national park and to stimulate, as well as sustain the local economy through its mission of “Tourism for Conservation”.  

The Trust engages with communities and partners to promote sustainable livelihoods, and invests in environmental education to increase people’s knowledge and understanding of the need to protect our environment. 

Meet our runner Max Brown!

“Firstly I am over the moon to be running the London Marathon for such a brilliant organisation. I was lucky enough to live in East Africa for a year in 2017/18 and although I sadly didn’t get the chance to make it to Zambia I wish I had. Travelling through Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi whilst working for a number of NGO’s gave me a chance to experience the breadth and importance of biodiversity across these countries. To have a chance to fundraise for such an important issue is something I am really looking forward to.  I am now based in Bristol, where I co-run a pasta start up called RaviOllie, that pride itself on its sustainable ethos. This opportunity seems the perfect chance to hold our first RaviOllie Supper Club in order to raise funds for Kasanka. I am really looking forward to pushing myself through this challenge in order to raise as much as I physically can for such a wonderful cause! So thank you again for giving me this opportunity. Max”
