“We will be partnering with MTOT directly and indirectly to complete the series throughout 2012.
“I have heard of the vision of MTOT and we would be happy to travel that journey with others in the corporate sector as well to realize it.
“The series has brought in anxiety amongst the athletes, parents and coaches.
“This is good for the sport as it gives a guideline for these young sports lovers to follow.
We are working towards getting support for the annual prizes too.
“I urge all of us to join hands to make this program the best in Kenya. It is a tough sport but a very interesting one too with many sports taking place at one time.
“In partnering with MTOT we are all celebrating what Kenya can be, rather than wish for a better country, we are laying the foundation for that better country.”
“I understand the Coast Province has the highest usage of drugs in Kenya.

“Agility is in the frontline to show its “corporate social responsibility” by supporting this program”, remarked Mr. De Zilva.
“Mr. De Zilva, has brought Agility into MTOT having seen the potential our group has.
“Special thanks to Mr. Dev Bij, CEO, Agility Logistics East Africa through Mr. Marlon De Zilva for the wonderful support given.”
