The Enormous Elephant Run- Fundraiser 10km run took place earlier this morning at Clapham Common. `Elephants’ & Supporters started gathering from 10am onwards (organisers were there from much earlier..setting up!). The run started at about 10.35am… and consisted of 5Km, 10Km and 15Km runs (1 lap, 2 lap or 3 lap of the path that zig-zagged in the Band-stand area of Clapham Common, South London).
This is the 3rd annual such fundraising event, organised by `The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’ – which embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species .
- Many Congratulations to my sister Vathani Navasothy for raising over £750+ .
- The team she’s part of (Team Mama Afrika) raised over £3,000 (offline donations still being counted).
- The `Enormous Elephant Run- London’ has raised over £50,000 of funds.
I was thrilled to have been there for the last 3 years in a row when my sister has been doing this charity Run. Vathani has raised £612 (in 2014), £444 (in 2015) and £750 (2016).. totalling £1,806+.
Am very proud indeed and will be putting together a video/photo montage of her 3 annual runs for this worthy cause that we both are passionate about. 🙂
I will be adding photos & videos of this event in due course in a blog very soon.
