Tradecorp participates in the Rhino Charge, the fundraising event for the conservation of Kenya’s Aberdare Ecosystem

Once again Tradecorp sponsored the car number 55 and the team ‘The Charging Hippos’ to participate in this competition, that associates motorsport with a noble cause: raising funds for the conservation of ecosystems in Kenya. The fund raising is directed by Rhino Ark, a charitable trust founded in 1988 for the building of a fence that encircles nearly 400 km of the Aberdare ecosystem to ensure its long-term integrity. The organization also announced in 2010 its commitment to support other critical ecosystems, starting with Mau Mt. Eburu and Mt. Kenya.

Rhino Charge

The Rhino Charge is an off-road event in which competitors are required to visit 13 points scattered over approximately 100 square kms of rough terrain within a 10 hour period. The support of volunteers and sponsors is essential for the fund-raising event.
