THE STORY:

My buddy Gary Clark and I will be going on the Rickshaw Run (rickshawrun.com) this January and we would like you to join us…at least virtually! During this 2 weeks of insanity that begins New Year's Day 2015 we will be driving from the bottom to the top of India…over 3000km in a rickshaw (tuk tuk). What is an Indian rickshaw? Basically a three-wheeled death trap with a lawnmower engine, no doors and the aerodynamics of a loaf of bread. Why are we doing this? Well, we have no good reason for driving on some of the worst roads in the world...being uncomfortable for 3 weeks...and facing a driving culture where cows ALWAYS have the right of way...except to say, it's time to shake things up in our lives. If anything will do it…this is it. We are sooo looking forward to surviving this "adventure."

But the real reason we are doing this is to raise money for an amazing charity. Hilarity for Charity, a group that was founded by actor Seth Rogan and is doing their damnest to help the Alzheimer's Association find a treatment for Alzheimer's disease.

So there you have it; two guys, one unreliable rickshaw, 3000km of poor roads and insane traffic, Dengue fever, Cholera, Malaria and the occasional outbreak of leprosy, no support vehicle, no actual route and one great cause…I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

Don't dawdle, donate until it chafes...then go to our Facebook page to follow our adventures: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rickshaw-Run/743465822380530

And here is a message from the Hilarity for Charity folks:

Hilarity for Charity (HFC) is a movement led by comedian Seth Rogen to inspire change and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among the millennial generation.

HFC takes a new approach to fighting a terrible disease. Since 2012, the successful Los Angeles HFC Variety show has entertained young, hip professionals through evenings filld with music and comedy while creating the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates - not to mention serving up some delicious mac ’n cheese! In 2014 they have expanded by launching a college program, HFC U, which raised over $130,000 it’s first semester. They’ve also added shows in New York and Montreal’s Just for Laugh’s festival.

Monies raised by HFC are directed to supporting families who are struggling with the cost of Alzheimer’s care, increasing support groups nationwide, and funding cutting-edge research through the Alzheimer’s Association.
