About the Cause
The 10to4 Mountain Bike Challenge, now in its 20th year, raises funds for Mount Kenya Trust (MKT), a Kenyan based charity that aims to drive collaborative action for the sustainable management of Mt Kenya’s biodiversity and natural resources through partnerships with government, communities and civil society.
Since the 10to4 was established in 2002, over $600,000 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 helped 50,000 Kenyans with health care and thousands of children understand conservation better.
