Team story

Hi Friends and Family,[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Laura and Cathy (aka Team Tuktanic) are off on a 'little adventure' which entails us driving 3,500km across India in the name of charity.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Our chariot is the hopefully not inauspiciously named Tuktanic. With 7hp of raw power to three tiiny wheel, the humble auto-rickshaw (aka tuktuk) is a feat of non-engineerance. Loud, uncomfortable, prone to breaking down. Does not take corners well and barely manages a straight line, completely useless at protecting you from the elements, rickshaws are undoubtedly the ultimate long distance, off road machine. Possibly the least suitable vehicle on the planet for covering the entire subcontinent.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]We will be taught how to drive and maintain our tuk tuk and we get a start and end point and 2 weeks to make it from one to the other along a route of our choosing![lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Why are we doing this? Well apart from a desire submit our bodies to extreme feats of endurance, there are three very worthwhile charities who could do with some support. The first is FRANKWATER a charity working locally in India to set-up sustainable community-owned water projects in some of the poorest regions and villages. FRANKWATER are the official charity to which all particpating teams contribute. The following two are the choice of both of us.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]The second is CANCER RESEARCH UK as we both have been affected by family members dealing with cancer.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]The final charity is the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRUST which is a special charity for Laura as her gorgeous Godson William has this horrible disease and maybe with enough funding this charity can help find a cure for him so he can lead a long and healthy life. Please see attached a picture of his gorgeousness (and Laura!) at a few days old having already had to have surgery.  And yes we have no shame about tugging at your heart strings for cold hard cash![lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]To learn more about what we will be doing you can visit - http://www.theadventurists.com/the-adventures/rickshaw-run/[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Thank you[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Laura & Cathy[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]ps if you are a company and would like to be one of our official sponsors us ... £500 buys your company logo space on our tuk tuk!
