At AlwaysBeEpic, we believe in giving; as we believe the best way to live is to give. It sits at the very core of who we are as human beings, here on the planet to help others.
We are three friends – DaveRisner, Derek and Cecil – who met in Chicago over twenty years ago, with one of us having moved to Los Angeles and the other to San Francisco. We are meeting at the end of this month in India to race in the Rickshaw Run.
While we traverse the width of northern India, driving an auto-rickshaw 2500 km over two weeks, we will be raising money for two causes we are passionate about.
One of our dear friends Dawn has contracted a very rare disease Stiff Person Syndrome (https://twitter.com/keepmoving4sps), which has received very little awareness and funding to combat it. We want to raise money to help her in her courageous battle.
Also, since we are also adventurers at our core, we love being in the outdoors; and nature holds a special place in our heart. So we are also raising money for Cool Earth, an organization that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
We like what the Adventurists (the organization hosting the race) said: “Not only is the Rickshaw Run an industrial dose of adventure, it’s also about Saving the World.”
We can certainly get behind saving the world – one person and one rainforest at a time; and hope you can too.
The race starts on 4/3/16; and we would love to be able to donate the money we raise by then.
Have we said ‘thank you’ yet? Thank you!!
