The Agency donated 700 tree seedlings during the event. The trees were planted in the vast Nandi forest to secure it from deforestation which is always a major threat to the county’s forest cover.
The race was presided over by the CAS Ministry of Water, Sanitation and Irrigation Dr. Andrew Tuimur who expressed his gratitude to the organizers and encouraged participants to keep on with the race till they reach high heights. He also thanked the institutions that donated trees highlighting that it will help the forest tree cover rise since it’s a major water catchment area in the region and beyond.
