Taking part in the Tropic Air 10to4 helps us to protect the mountain you are riding down.

"The 10to4 is our most significant fund-raising event each year," says Susie Weeks. "Every single person who takes part puts money directly into the projects that are vital to protect Mount Kenya's environment supporting its people."

Since the 10to4 was established in 2002, over $500,000 has been raised to support the MKT in their work. This includes planting more than half a million trees, building and maintaining a 14km elephant corridor through farmland, two elephant underpasses, returning over 450 hectares of bare land to indigenous forest, tree nurseries nurturing hundreds of thousands of seedlings, and helping 50,000 Kenyans with healthcare and thousands of children to understand conservation better.

We are asking all competitors to go the extra mile this year by supporting Mount Kenya in more ways than just the entry by raising critical funds for mountain conservation.

We ask each competitor to pledge to raise a certain amount as part of taking part in the 10to4 (this is separate to the registration fee).

Once again top sponsorship earns a Tropic Air helicopter flight around Mount Kenya at next year’s event, and anyone who raises over 20,000KSh will be entered into a prize draw to win two adult tickets to Malindi, courtesy of Fly540.
