Weʼre raising £3,000 to help these four charities as we conquer the Mongol Rally 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In the summer of 2019, our team of four (Baby Don't Yurt Me) will set out on a huge adventure to conquer the Mongol Rally. If you haven't heard of it, the Mongol Rally is a charity challenge where we will drive from the UK all the way across the globe, through desert and over mountains, to Mongolia and onto the finish line in Ulan-Ude (Russia). The challenge is to complete this in a car with little engine power and we have gone for a much loved 1l polo. With over 10,000 miles to be driven, our skills will be put to the test and hopefully we will make it to the finish line with our car in one piece and some stories to tell.
Overall the rally is for charity and we are raising this money for 4 charities that mean a lot to us and we believe can have a real impact on people and the world around us.
The charities are:
Cool Earth - An NGO working with rainforest communities to help reduce deforestation and effectively climate change. This is done by improving the quality of life of the communities most affected by deforestation so that they have the means to protect the forests from logging, agriculture and the many other threats to our climate.
CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) have been doing astounding work to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY has primarily worked funding medical research and promoting and developing heart screening programs that has helped to test over 25,000 young people aged 14-35. CRY also helps to support young people diagnosed and families affected by YSCD.
Dementia Support - Dementia Support is a local charity to us. It helps to provide facilities and services for people living with dementia and their families and carers. With over 850,000 people in the UK battling Dementia, it is important that these people get the needed to support.
PHA UK - The Pulmonary Hypertension Association UK is the only UK charity dedicated to support sufferers of PH, a rare and incurable condition which restricts the blood flow around the heart and lungs. PHA do amazing work supporting people living with PH and research into new ways of combating the condition.
Any help supporting these charities is much appreciated
