A Life Worth Living

It has recently come to our attention that there are people that may regard an undertaking like the Mongol Rally as ‘risky’ or ‘dangerous’, or even sheer folly. The Adventurists reinforce this belief by stating clearly in their Warning: “Your chances of being seriously injured or dying as a result of your participation are high.” We are not taking the rally lightly, there’s simply too much at stake when it comes to the children, but we are moving forward. As Leo Buscaglia said:  “The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.” So to our supporters we want to reassure you that we’re in this to finish. To our critics we wish you the best, but we both know there’s still time to participate in the adventure. Come along - join us vicariously, give your support and help save the world. Saving a life at risk is a risk worth taking. And you can quote us on that.
