Altitude, endurance and fun!
Very proud of our Tropic Air team who competed in the ‘rush‘ race of the 10to4 – 60km over some tough terrain, at altitude! All 7 riders finished strong, with Cyprian (one of our aircraft mechanics) taking 2nd place overall in this event!
What a great privilege it is to be the title sponsor of such a fantastic event, that raises money in support of the conservation of Mount Kenya, through the Mount Kenya Trust. Although this is just the 2nd year of our sponsorship, for several years we have supported the 10 to 4 providing a helicopter free of charge, to track the riders, for casevac and aerial filming.
Our association with the Mount Kenya Trust goes back more than a decade. We have always admired their work and commitment to conservation of the forests and the support they give to community projects. They work hand-in-hand with the Kenya Forest Service, the Kenya Wildlife Service and many conservation stakeholders, and thanks to such partnerships and dedication, the future of Mount Kenya’s natural resource remain healthy and sustainable.
