Rather than just tell the story – the For Rangers teams began by taking part in some of the hardest, most challenging endurance events on the planet, in order to draw attention not only to the plight of Africa’s wildlife and the poaching crisis but importantly, the hardships and dangers the rangers are exposed to in trying to protect our wildlife. For Rangers primary goal has always and will always be to raise funds that go directly support Africa's Rangers.
The For Rangers team consists of individuals from across the globe. To date, the For Rangers family have taken part in some of the world’s toughest ultra-marathons: The Marathon des Sables in Morocco, The Jungle Ultra in Peru, Fire & Ice in Iceland, as well as numerous marathons, half-marathons, and Tough Mudders. A team has completed the Yukon 1,000 – a 10-day 1000-mile kayak down the Yukon River and another has endured a similar distance over ten days in the Mongolian Derby. To date over $3m has been raised and used to meet the needs of the Rangers on the frontline of protecting wildlife in Africa.
