8 different people with no racing or marathon experience have decided to take time out from their busy lives to train and take part in a half marathon in order to draw attention to the plight of the rhino and raise £1,000 towards Rhino Revolutions first canine anti-poaching unit and motion detection cameras.
With your help they can achieve their aim and YOU don't even have to break sweat! Simply make a donation and help spread the word.*
*We do still have spaces available should anyone wish to also take part and raise funds for Rhino Revolution
DOING NOTHING IS NO LONGER AN OPTION
Rhino Revolution UK was set up in January 2017 to raise funds and awareness for Rhino Revolution's rehab facility in Hoedspruit, South Africa and to provide a direct link between people in the UK and South Africa who wish to take action and help save this iconic species for future generations.
As well as rescue and rehabilitation of rhinos affected by the poaching crisis, Rhino Revolution works closely with anti-poaching units and carries out community education to encourage and engage the conservationists of the future.
