Bahati Laizer is on our team of guides at Wild Frontiers, Tanzania. Over the past 7 to 8 years, he has been one of the guides guiding our groups of marathon tourists who come and participate in the Kilimanjaro Marathon, and combine it with a safari and climb of Kilimanjaro.
Meeting up with these runners got him thinking of actually participating in the race, so, he started training … and, in 2016, he completed his first half marathon! This did not go unnoticed by Kathy Loper, the organiser of marathon tourists – www.kathyloperevents.com – and she invited Bahati to the USA, to meet with her groups, help market the races (including Tanzania) and be an ambassador for her and the events.
This is his first time overseas, and we are all extremely excited for him. We cannot thank Kathy enough for this kind gesture.
Within our businesses, showing some initiative, loyalty, and hard work pays off, as can be seen.
