Eye2Elephants

Personal message

I'm raising funds by running solo 840km from Elephants Eye cave near Cape Town, to Addo Elephant National Park, the home of the African elephant, near Port Elizabeth, followed by running the Addo 100miler.

Starting on the 10th of February & arriving 19 days later in Addo, with an average of a marathon (42km) a day.

The following day I will start the Addo 100miler, an annual trail running event, midday on the 2nd of March.

I'm Robert Le Brun, a 28 year old passionate conservationist, and it's always been a dream of mine to do an expedition in aid of the environment & conservation. 2018 I'm putting those dream into action.

This run is not only for elephants but for everything that we are doing to this planet - single use plastics, natural resource mismanagement (best example is water), excessive agriculture only for profit, human/urban sprawl, the list is endless...

 

"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed" - Mahatma Gandhi

 

This a statement that resonates with me & I believe strongly we can all individually do our bit & stand by it. I have not chosen any specific charity (or issue) because it is not something I want to rush into & the correct one will grab my attention one day...


The cash raised would go toward the running (literally) of the project & keeping me on the road & hopefully for many more future expeditions too...
