We’re really delighted to be sponsoring one of the young and crazy teams taking part in this year’s Mongol Rally. This motoring event, which lasts all summer, sees 200+ teams drive ludicrous and ludicrously under powered cars from western Europe to Ulan Ude, Russia (some 25,000km), raising money for charity on the way. All teams raise funds for Cool Earth, as well as charities important to the individual teams.
Team Shenlong is made up of four great guys: Oliver Barber (from Almonte, our local rep on the team!), Markus (German), Grayson and Seth (both Canadian). They’ve identified three additional charities that their fundraising goal will support:
- Streetkids International e.V.
- Taiwan Fund for Children and Families
- British Columbia Schizophrenia Society
They’ve promised to keep an eye out for cool coinage on their route, of course!
