We are Andrew, Will and George and in August 2016 we will be traversing 3,500km across India in a 7-horse power rickshaw with a maximum speed of 50km/h. Downhill. Madness, you say? Definitely. The Rickshaw Run is not just about pushing physical and psychological boundaries, it’s also about making a difference. Each team is asked to raise as much money as possible for the official charity — Cool Earth. Their mission is to reverse the effects of climate change by protecting rainforests that without intervention will be destroyed within the next 18 months. For more information on the incredible work Cool Earth are involved in, head to https://www.coolearth.org/
We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
