Thanks for visiting and supporting us as we embark on one of the greatest charity rallies in the world—the 2017 MONGOL RALLY! This arduous annual race kicks off in London, England and ends more than 10,000 miles later when we cross the finish line in Ulan-Ude, Russia. To date, the Rally has raised over $5 million for charitable causes all over the world. Our adventure will cover one-third of the globe, through over 20 countries, traversing some of the most remote terrain on earth.
Our goal is to raise at least $16,000 for two amazing charities: World Bicycle Relief (WBR) and Cool Earth, the official charity of the 2017 Mongol Rally. WBR stimulates opportunity and enables access to mobility through the Power of Bicycles. The organization is committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, while also enabling independence, creating jobs, and improving productivity and quality of life. Cool Earth works to preserve and prevent the destruction of rainforests at the frontlines of deforestation. Operating in South America, Africa, and East Asia, the organization collaborates with local villages to introduce new opportunities that benefit the local economy and protect the surrounding rainforests.
We couldn't be more psyched to kick off this adventure in our 1.0 liter engine tin can car. We look forward to braving desert bandits, bent border guards, and tumultuous terrain fueled by the support of our friends, family, and backers, and knowing that we've raised awareness and support for these two great charities!
