Team story

[p]Julia, Christian, Sam, Rob, Trish and Andrew are planning to do something just a little bit crazy this year, because from the 12th - 19th October, with the support of Rosedale and 'My 10 Days', we will be driving across the tropical island of Sri Lanka on dirt tracks, through nature reserves, tea plantations and along the coast of the Indian Ocean in a 10.5bhp (198cc) 3 wheeled auto-rickshaw which will be pimped with our own custom design. The Rickshaw, as a vehicle, is barely powerful enough to carry itself, let alone two adventure buddies and their rucksacks, so it will be interesting! The trip itself is a totally self funded venture, with whatever we raise going to charity. We have the requirement to raise a minimum of £1000, of which at least £500 goes to The Adventurists official charity 'Cool Earth'. Whatever else we raise will be going to support 'Brain Tumour Research' which is a very personal choice for Julia, whose younger sister Susan died as a result of a brain tumour in December 2010. As you will see, if you follow the link to the charity below, 'just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease'.[/p][p][url=http://www.braintumourresearch.org/]www.braintumourresearch.o[/url]rg[/p][p][url=https://www.coolearth.org/]https://www.coolearth.org/[/url][/p][p]For each team there is no set route, no back up, no way of knowing if you are going to make it! The only certainty is that we will get lost; we will most probably get stuck somewhere; and we will more than likely break down, but we will be safe in the knowledge that we will be helping to save a little bit of the world. It is definitely not a holiday; it can be dangerous; but it will be an unforgettable adventure for us all to experience. If you would like to find out a little bit more about what we are doing or what our trip involves, please follow the link to the organiser's website below:[/p][p][url=https://www.theadventurists.com/adventures/rickshaw-run-sri-lanka/]https://www.theadventurists.com/adventures/rickshaw-run-sri-lanka/[/url][/p][p]Once again, thank you to Rosedale in supporting us to do something truly amazing, and helping us to hopefully make a difference to the lives of people affected by brain cancers.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p]
