Rhino Charge 2018- Let’s Support Team 56 Together!
Be Part Of The Big Solution
Kenya is home to some of the world’s most spectacular and endangered flora and fauna. This isn’t news to anyone, we all talk about how lucky we are to live in Kenya or visit it but we don’t spend enough time or energy doing much to ensure she remains protected – as recent as 2 months ago the world said goodbye to “Sudan”, the world’s last male northern white Rhino.
Poaching, deforestation, greed and corruption have all been contributing factors towards the destruction of Kenya’s endangered species and their homes, but we know this – we need to do more to stop it from getting to the point of no return.
For as little as KES 2,000 you can be part of the drive for a positive change. Just by sacrificing your next few glasses of wine or beers, you may actually save an entire species or help towards building and maintaining infrastructure that will protect their habitat for generations to come.
This year Team 56 – “Big Foot” will be taking part (in its 8th year) at the annual Rhino Charge and in doing so, each team member has individually committed to raise money for the Rhino Ark, a charitable trust that has made great strides in conservation and has been significantly supported by the annual Rhino Charge event.
What is the Rhino Charge? Simply put, it’s is an incredible fund raising event organized by the Rhino Ark to raise money for its conservation projects, including the world renowned Aberdare Electric Fence Project.

The team has so far hosted two successful fund raising events, a go-karting competition at the TGRV circuit (Rift Valley) and most recently a ‘Beer Pong’ event. They still need your support as they strive to hit their target of KES 1.5 million shillings.
