Hi Friends! For those that we haven’t already boasted to, Drew Keough and I have decided to take our talents to India this coming January to participate in our first Rickshaw Run! What’s the Rickshaw Run, you ask? The Rickshaw run is an event put on a number of times a year by a group call The Adventurists. For our adventure, we’ll be starting in Jaisalmer and ending in Kochi, traveling nearly 2000 miles across the Indian subcontinent in a vastly underpowered auto rickshaw. Better known by many as a tuk tuk. There’s no set route, no back-up team, and no way of knowing if we’ll make it. The only certainty is that we will get lost, we will get stuck, and we will break down. Easily the least sensible thing to do with two weeks. And now for the sensible bit. We’re inviting you to ride along with us! Leading up to the challenge we’ll be raising money for a great charity named COOL EARTH. This group works with rainforest communities to redevelop local livelihoods and empower those closest to deforestation to put a stop to it. Our goal is to raise $2000 USD prior to the kickoff. A dollar for every mile we’ll be riding. It goes without saying that any donation would obviously be incredibly kind, but for those that donate $50 or more, we’ll be printing off your names and cycling them through on the sides of our tuk tuk, allowing you to ride along with us a day at a time! You’ll be able to track our daily progress as we careen across the country, and we’ll be sharing boatloads of photos and updates documenting all the madness along the way. For anyone who might be interested in sponsoring us at a more substantial level, we’d happy to speak privately about it. Below you’ll find links to a bit more general information about the Rickshaw Run and COOL EARTH. At a little more than two months out, we’re getting more and more excited to dive into this challenge, and it’s all starting to become very real. Thanks for the long read, and we hope you have fun following along! https://onyourterms.com/i-drove-across-india-in-a-glorified-lawnmower-and-it-was-super-chill-67d0cbd69db9 https://www.theadventurists.com/adventures/rickshaw-run https://www.coolearth.org/
