Rickshaw Across India for Charity
The Team Part
Allow me to introduce our 2017 Rickshaw Run team: "The Morning Commute."
Jarrod Silva—Lifelong traveler, Italian conversationalist, event manager for the San Francisco 49ers, and better than you at ping pong (seriously, WOW).
Shawn Forno—Travel writer, surf instructor, videographer, part-time ukulele player, and advocate for the left-handed (the world just wasn't made for us).
And YOU!—Donor, fan, friend, family, enthusiast, or interested stranger. We're counting on your donation, and we've saved you a (metaphorical) seat in our tuk tuk! Seriously, don't all of you show up. It's super small. Speaking of the rickshaw...
The Adventure Part
We leave from mystical Jaisalmer, Rajasthan in the north near Pakistan and journey to the hill forts and tea plantations of the Western Ghats, the famous beaches of Goa and the western coast, the incredible Ajanta and Ellora caves, the bustle of megacity Mumbai, and finally the end point—the tropical destination Cochin.
It's going to be amazing, and we'd love you to be part of our once in a lifetime adventure as we see beautiful landscapes, meet incredible people, and take part in an epic adventure. We can't wait!
We're going to push, pull, coast, float, and drag our 3-wheeled, 7 horsepower rickshaw 2,000 miles across the entire country of India in just two weeks!
The Charity Part
Every team in the Rickshaw Run is tasked with raising money for Cool Earth's rainforest charity , and we're thrilled to be part of that effort.
The annual Rickshaw Runs have raised over £5,500,000 for charities over the years, for some pretty amazing causes, so now its your turn to chip in, become part of the team, and make a difference!
