On Saturday we hosted the Chase Bank staff and their families for a family fun day charity walk through their Chase Group Foundation. The walk was themed as `Stand up for African mothers’ whose aim was to raise funds for reducing maternal deaths in rural areas through the training of midwives. The guests arrived early, excited and ready to support African mothers; they were welcomed in open arms. To begin the day, they were led through a warm up session to prepare them for the walk.

Security was tight and this was with the help of the KFS rangers, G4S, the Kenya police and the traffic police and not forgetting a couple of ambulances for health safety and first aid. Just to sum up, safety at the event was 100% guaranteed.

The walk started at around 9:30 with the adults covering 10km and the children 5 km, there were some designated stop over points where they got refreshments (water) to re-energize them to complete the walk. The finish line for both the adults and the children led to the picnic site where they were welcomed to music from a DJ, team building games and of course some comedy laughter from our very own Churchill Ndambuki , a.k.a Mwalimu King’ang’i who was also the MC of the event. Corporates and individuals then came forth and donated money to the foundation to stand up for The African mother.

The turn up was so successful with over 1000 participants and the number of companies associated with the event was ecstatic. The participants enjoyed every bit of it.
We welcome more and more Corporates to hold events at the Sanctuary.
