So Tom Cardale and I (Paul Nicholls) have decided to take the leap and sign up to the Mongolia Charity Rally 2013. The rally is organised by the UK registered charity Go Help; who use the rally as a fundraising platform for their outreach projects in Central Asia.
What's it all about?
We're basically going to drive 10,000 miles - virtually half way around the world - from London to Ulaanbataar in a vehicle which we will then donate to a local charity project.
This is no package holiday and there is no guide-book - we'll be crossing a huge range of terrain from mountain ranges to deserts; navigating ourselves around the political mine-fields of international borders and even dodging active war-zones to complete this epic journey.
Why? Just why?
First and foremost this is a charity fundraising exercise, we'll be raising money directly for Go Help as well as donating a vehicle to their affiliated charity projects in Mongolia. Of course it is also an epic adventure, and that is why it has appealed to us both so much. Fundraising with a difference.
