Businessman Manu Chandaria through his foundation pledged Ksh10 million to spend on schools chosen by marathoner Eliud Kipchoge, after his outstanding performance in Vienna, Austria on Saturday, October 12.
The foundation announced that it would repair roofs of schools whose structures were dilapidated.
"Congratulations on Kipchoge's win. Wow. To celebrate, Chandaria Foundation will provide Kenya Shillings Ten Million of roofing to replace the leaking roofs of the schools of his choice," Chandaria disclosed.
The Nairobi-based businessman of Indian decent maintained that the project would only involve the marathoner, because he was proud of the feat he had accomplished.
This is not the first time Chandaria has been generous, as he was also among the donors that helped build the tower at The University of Nairobi with a Ksh50 million donation.
Chandaria joined the list of prominent people and organizations that promised to reward Eliud Kipchoge after his triumph.
Kipchoge is set to receive a brand new car, and reports suggest that his INEOS1:59 challenge might push his income past the billion shilling mark.
He is also among the wealthiest Kenyan athletes having earned Ksh25 million after his win in the World Marathon Majors titles including Chicago, New York, London, Tokyo, Boston and Berlin marathons.
