|Marching for the Elephants - with the Zambezi Elephant Fund - November 2019
| On Saturday 16 November 2019, first, came the festive and very social Mukuvisi March for Elephants in Harare, the second such event, which is planned to become annual, where over 410 runners, walkers, children and their dogs took to the 3, 5, or 8 km routes through the popular Mukuvisi Woodland Trails, where everything was looking wonderful green and vibrant, following some very uplifting speeches about some of the amazing conservation efforts happening in Zimbabwe, including by Richard Tennant of Flying For Wildlife - who then headed to the Zambezi Valley to continue vital aerial surveillance work.
It was heartening to hear of the incredible fundraising efforts going on and the dedication of so many who are volunteering their time and skills to conserve our precious wildlife.
Thanks go to all the vendors who donated a portion of their takings at this very enjoyable event, to the Zambezi Elephant Fund, and to all those who made the event possible again this year and all the volunteers who gave up their time!
Thanks also to Rooney's, Safeguard, Faramatsi Motors, ACE Ambulance and African Threads for their support of the event for a second year running.
Meantime, some other smaller groups of enthusiastic conservationists and National Parks staff, also ran and walked 10km in Mana Pools and Hwange National Parks, where it was even hotter!
As those taking part in Harare and elsewhere in Zimbabwe settled down for a scorching afternoon, participants in New York donned their running shoes and descended on Central Park, where a brisk -1°C greeted the over 500 runners and walkers who all 'Stood up for Elephants' with Forrest Galante, before setting off to the Start Line of their 10km route.
Later, some of the participants congregated at Central Park Zoo to listen to a great Zimbabwean-style music band, award the highest fundraiser with her prize, and announce the prize draw for a lucky over-$500 fundraiser. Congratulations to them and huge thanks to all those who registered and fundraised in support of Zambezi Elephant Fund’s efforts.
