An Adventure Through India for Water

A 12 day, 2,000 mile race in a auto rickshaw across India with absolutely no support besides a starting and ending point – why would anyone do this?  We did it in order to bring more visibility to the clean water crisis in the world.  With the help of partners like Adventure Life, we were able to raise $16,000 for charity: water in essence bringing 500 more people clean water.  
 
This was not an easy fundraising effort nor was it a Sunday drive – it was actually quite grueling.  But as you can see from the video and images below, it was absolutely worth it.  Not only did we make strides improving water conditions for people, but we were also able to see a part of India few people ever get to experience.  As two women traveling through India we also received a lot of attention – most all of it positive.  People were excited to meet us, talk to us, and share their culture and assistance.  We drove through some of the most remote and small villages surprising the locals and ourselves.
