**Current goal: once we reach $2,000 in charitable donations raised Justin will eat the hottest chip in the world, the Paqui Ghost Reaper Chip made famous by the #OneChipChallenge that was delivered to his home in a small red coffin, on a livestream for all of your enjoyment. This is madness, but a donation of $100 from you or your organization sponsors not unlike the Hunger Games a cup of milk or yogurt to help him in his time of very spicy need. (For more info on the #OneChipChallenge https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8qjW-pgey-U)**
In August 2018 the Districkshaws — Justin Herman, Sonny Hashmi and Philip Ashlock — will embark on a two week, 3,500 km tuk tuk race across the Indian subcontinent during monsoon season on an quixotic adventure to raise funds for charities we love and awareness for things we hold dearer than our own personal safety, while exploring the vast beauty of the land in the absolute least comfortable and reliable transportation imaginable — the tuk tuk.
We will host charitable fundraising and awareness events leading up to the grand adventure, and will share the experience daily from the road thanks to our sponsors — with each fundraising goal we reach we will unlock new experiences for you.
Justin Herman — Captain + Poet Laureate + Vindaloo Specialist
Sonny Hashmi — Mechanic + Linguist + Bollywood Liaison
Philip Ashlock — Mapping Data Navigator + Digital Archivist + DJ

The legendary Rickshaw Run:
We're going to start in the medieval trading center of Jaisalmer in the princely, western Indian state of Rajasthan in the heart of the Thar Desert. We tear through Bombay the hard way. We follow the coast to the Portuguese colony of Goa with all its tropical spice plantations, ending in the ancient port of Kochi, known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea. We've recruited a team of immortals based on the rarest and purist of skills. We're spending a year in training, booking flights, designing a solar powered tuk tuk that can livestream our adventures daily. We're raising money for charity on the dare that we live to tell the tell, god willing. Be part of the adventure, encourage your friends to join, and come along for the ride of a lifetime.
