Run­ning to save the chee­tah

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

HE may not be able to keep up with the 70mph speeds of a chee­tah but Jim Ma­honey is run­ning for the chee­tah – and all the other big cats at the Wildlife Her­itage Foun­da­tion (WHF) in Smar­den. Mr Ma­honey is com­pet­ing in Iron­man France 2009, which con­sists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cy­cle then a 26.2 mile run – without a break!

En­dan­gered

The WHF works to pre­vent the ex­tinc­tion of the world’s most en­dan­gered cats both in cap­tiv­ity and world­wide through its site in Smar­den and through ex­ten­sive con­tri­bu­tions to over­seas con­ser­va­tion projects in the field.
