Climbing for a Cure in Tanzania

Keni and members of his team reached Uruhu Peak on September 23.

Keni Cook, Chief Electronic Technician on the Transocean Richardson, took eight days in September to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for cancer research. He made the climb in memory of his late father Iain and sister, Felicity, who both died of cancer at ages 56 and 42.

Keni joined 25 other climbers as part of Charity Challenge U.K. (, an organization that arranges adventure trips that allow participants to raise money for thousands of charity organizations.

“It was an opportunity to improve my health, raise money for a good cause, undertake an arduous challenge, meet other people, see another country up close from Africa’s highest peak and have the immense satisfaction of knowing I reached the summit,” said Keni.

As of press time, Keni had raised more than £1,000 (about $1,680 USD) for Cancer Research UK (, but still has yet to achieve his £1,500 goal. If you’d like to make a donation to Keni’s cause, visit


Rallying for a Cure in Cairo

Transocean supported Rally for the Cure in Cairo, Egypt, this October.

Transocean has sponsored “Rally for a Cure,” an annual ladies golf event in Cairo for the past five years with a $500 donation. At this year’s event, held on October 27 at Katameya Heights Golf and Tennis Resort, nearly 90 golfers participated – all wearing pink shirts, of course. Proceeds from the event are donated to The Breast Cancer Foundation of Egypt, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and to provide 100 underprivileged women with free mammograms. 

Rally for the Cure® is a partnership with Condé Nast Publications, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the volunteer Ambassadors and the participants. Since its inception in 1996, this awareness-driven campaign has spread the life-saving message of early detection to more than one million active Rally for the Cure® participants and to the people in their lives.

Racing for a Cure in Houston

Transocean supported Rally for the Cure in Cairo, Egypt, this October.

More than 200 Transocean employees and family members hit the streets in Houston on October 3, participating in the Komen Houston Race for the Cure. Transocean this year raised more than $26,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure via a corporate donation and more than $16,000 in employee contributions – a company record!

Amanda Scott and Eunice Mock were this year’s top Race for the Cure fundraisers.

The entire Transocean team worked hard to support this year’s “Race for the Cure” and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer. But two ladies really went above and beyond in their fundraising efforts, and were awarded $100 gift certificates for their efforts. Congratulations to Amanda Scott, HR Coordinator ($1,150 in contributions) and Eunice Mock, Administrative Assistant ($775 in contributions). You go girls!
