Story

*** This is also our blog, please look through the MORE UPDATES below for our progress and journey so far!***

Hello All.

The brief is simple; 10,000 miles in a very inappropriate and ill-equipped 1.2L car from Goodwood To Ulan-Ude, Russia via the Mongolian city of Ulaanbaatar.

The challenge 'should' take 6 weeks. Providing that all goes to our very optimistic plan!

We will be driving across over 20 different countries and likely to be camping near to the 'road' to keep costs down. The last 6000 miles is going to be the fun half. Roads for our journey are forecast to be scarce, so getting our little 1.2L trusty Subaru Justy all the way to Eastern Russia is likely to be a real character tester!

Why Macmillan:

My best friend, Matt had cancer when he was 17. No fault of
his own. He was the innocent one of our group; never smoked, drank excessively, etc. not really very fair! 

He had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which basically means his white blood cells (immune system) where mutating into tumours and effectively
trying to kill him. He had to have very intense chemo to wipe out all of his white blood cells, then allow his body to re build and construct itself a whole new immune system. The chemo had to nearly kill him to kill the cancer.

It was really tough for all of us, especially him and his
family. Macmillan were there to support him when none of us knew how to. Without the strength which he gained from the support, he may not have survived.
