Safaricom PLC holds the Lewa Marathon, as it is more popularly known, every year. This is in partnership Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
The aim of this marathon is to raise funds for community development and wildlife conservation.
The late Bob Collymore, Safaricom CEO, spearheaded the campaign and his death will leave a huge dent in these efforts.
The marathon, which started in the year 2000, spans a length of 42 kilometres.
