Brooke's Mongol Derby 2019

$15,000 goal

Campaign created 5 months ago
I have been known to do things most people would not. However, this time I think I threw everyone for a loop when I said I wanted to compete in the Mongol Derby.

If you don’t know the Mongol Derby is regarded as the longest, toughest horse race. Inspired by Genghis Khan’s “pony express” style mail route.

In August 2019, I plan to ride semi- wild native horses 620 miles across the Steppe. I will be sleeping in tents/under the stars while relying on the Steppe’s nomadic people for food ( sometimes a freshly butchered goat), water, and shelter.

My mission is simple: Live the biggest life I can, contribute to help stop deforestation by way of Cool Earth, and ride in honor of my little sister Macy who battles Cystic Fibrosis.

 
Each Derby competitor's $14,288 entry helps give back to Mongolian families, whose generosity with their horses and their homes makes the race possible, as well as Cool Earth , a charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. Any other proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


I can’t do this alone, and I would love to have you along for the ride. The race is not cheap -- $14,288 entry fee + $2,500 airfare + gear + insurance + training + rabies shot + etc. – long story short, I need your support.

Want to ride vicariously along? Pledge your support toward my entry and my charitable mission and you’ll ride right along with me every step of the way.
