Always Be Epic - Rickshaw Run 2016
We are three friends - DaveRisner, Derek and Cecil - who met in Chicago over twenty years ago, with one of us having moved to Los Angeles and the other to San Francisco. We are meeting at the end of this month in India to race in the Rickshaw Run.
While we traverse the width of northern India, driving an auto-rickshaw 2500 km over two weeks, we will be raising money for two causes we are passionate about.
One of our dear friends Dawn had been misdiagnosed for the past four years with one rare disease, and just this month found out at the Mayo Clinic she has Fibromyalgia instead, another one of the 134 rare illnesses her organization Keep Moving Help Colletto Cure SPS is dedicated to help educate, raise awareness and support ( Twitter Link and Website ) in her courageous battle to get better. We want to raise money to help her organization.
Also, since we are also adventurers at our core, we love being in the outdoors; and nature holds a special place in our heart. So we are also raising money for Cool Earth, an organization that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
We like what the Adventurists (the organization hosting the race) said: "Not only is the Rickshaw Run an industrial dose of adventure, it’s also about Saving the World."
We can certainly get behind saving the world - one person and one rainforest at a time; and hope you can too.
The race starts on 4/3/16; and we would love to be able to donate the money we raise by then.
Have we said ‘thank you’ yet? Thank you!!
Please help us raise money and awareness to support our two charities on this GoFundMe - HelpRAD.org and Cool Earth. Every little bit helps!! Thank you!
Hi makkale, Cecil, Derek, Dave, drive safe, stay safe & healthy & come back home safe. All our prayers & blessings & all the very best.❤️
