Partnership between Meru County and Kevian Kenya Limited Towards the Mt Kenya Run Championship


This morning Governor Kiraitu Murungi  has launches a partnership between Meru Government and Kevian Kenya Limited led by Managing Director Dr Kimani Rugendo at their Nairobi factory. Kevian manufactures Mt Kenya bottled water, Pick n Peel juices as well as both Afia fruit juices and Afia Energy drink.

Kevian gave a sponsorship of Ksh 10 million towards the Mt Kenya Run championship that is slated for February 22nd at the Kenya School of Adventure and Leadership (KeSAL), which is 2, 811 metres above sea level. The 12kms athletes will go up to 3 128 metres.

  • The company will be both our presenting and hydrating partner through their beverages range of brands, and also the medals awarded to participants and winners will be produced by Sterling Craft, Kevian’s sister company.

The funds collected will go towards establishing a fully fledged Meru Cancer Institute, conservation and boosting tourism.

Unfortunately, Meru county is experiencing increased cases of the cancer scourge, especially the alimentary canal related cancers. It is therefore high time for us to establish the causes as soon as possible.

Ten ambassadors, UN team, elite runners among others have already confirmed that they will be participating in the event. Registration is ongoing at and will be closing on February 14th.
