On 8 August 2018 I am attempting my most fearsome feat yet: a 1020 km race across Outer Mongolia riding 25 semi-wild native horses and carrying only 5kgs of luggage. Navigating alone and relying on nomads for food, water and shelter. On a mission to help stop deforestation and doggies in distress. One of 40 riders worldwide.
To get it done I needs a support crew, and that's where you come in. The race is expensive: $12,995 entry fee + $2,500 airfare + gear + insurance ++++ I am calling upon your love and support.
Because I can and I'm committed, I can have fun, laugh, cry, meet new people, be really stinky at the end and above all can raise money for charity, something I've always done!
I'm a survivor, I've beaten cancer, had severe loss and trauma during my life, was told 15 years ago I would never ride a horse again due to a terrible accident. I've come out a winner with a smile on my weather-beaten face!
To be selected to compete in the longest, toughest horse race in the world (Guinness World Records) is an honour in itself.
To complete it is a balance of survival, horsemanship, wit and sheer guts and determination.
To win is the ultimate challenge.
To this end I need help. Asking for personal sponsorship is not easy, I have always been on the other end doing fundraising to benefit both animals and humans in need.
Now the table has turned. Costs of the race itself are enormous
I would love Sponsors that will be with me every step of the way, following me on my live tracker throughout this incredible journey, blogging, tweeting, facebooking, whatsapping – all to promote themselves (corporates), raise awareness for the charities as well as the adventure itself. I want you to feel a part of this team and I in turn will make you a huge part of mine. A live blog will follow my movements and naturally you would be a big part of that. I am happy to wear you logo anywhere possible if required (my helmet would most likely be the most obvious choice). Your logo and details will be included on pages within the official adventure site as well as on numerous social media platforms, in my Blog content and on Regional/National press coverage, interviews etc. I would like sponsors that I can work together with deciding how best it can benefit YOU!
If there is any way you see a mutual partnership forming through this life-changing adventure, please feel free to contact me via email, phone, whatsapp, skype or carrier pigeon!!!!!
