Edward Norton Encourages You To Support Team Nature

Jun 7, 2012 by

Dear Loyal Conservancy Supporter,

In less than 30 days, endurance running champion Scott Jurek and I are joining Team Nature to run one of the world’s most challenging races in the world – Tusk Trust’s Safaricom Marathon/Half Marathon in Kenya.

Our friend and environmental leader actor Edward Norton encourages you to support Team Nature’s run in Kenya — and help us meet our $100,000 goal on Crowdrise by June 30.

You can be part of Team Nature without having to get off the couch — support us with a gift to Team Nature today! And when you donate $25 or more, you’ll have a chance to win a pair of Brooks running shoes* of your choice.

Your dedication to conservation motivates me to take on personal actions as we work to protect our natural world.

I hope that my training – and that of all Team Nature – will motivate you to support us today knowing that the money we raise will go to help the people and wildlife on the millions of acres of Kenya’s northern rangelands.

Will you help us reach our goal? Your gift to Team Nature will directly support on-the-ground health, education and habitat protection initiatives. And you just may be strapping on a new pair of high-end technical running shoes the next time you hit the trail.

Thank you for your continued commitment to protect nature and preserve life.
