Mongol Rally 2016 in aid of Max Levene Trust and Back Up Trust

26th July 2016

Over the next several weeks, two fearless young men are embarking upon the Mongol Rally, in aid of their friend Max and the Back Up Trust. We are proud to be sponsoring the intrepid duo as they take on the 10,000-mile challenge!

Ed Blackwell and Mike Parlby have hit the road in a 0.8 litre Daewoo Matiz (the rally rules state all cars must be less than 1 litre) and set off towards Siberia. The pair are hoping to complete the strenuous journey from London to Ulan Ude in Russia within 5 weeks. They will receive no support along the journey as rally rules stipulate they can’t have any support crews in case of breakdowns.

They are raising funds for The Max Levene Trust, set up in aid of their friend, Max, who suffered a serious spinal injury after an accident whilst paying rugby at school. Following his accident, his school set up The Max Levene Trust with the slogan ‘Remember the boy, support the man’ and have raised thousands to support Max. Ed and Mike have set out to complete the Mongol Rally to raise money for the trust and Back Up Trust, a UK charity who help people of all ages and abilities following spinal injuries, who have been instrumental in Max’s rehabilitation.

The duo needed to raise a minimum of £1000 to take part in the rally, which will then be split between Cool Earth, a charity chosen by the rally organisers, and the rest split equally between Max and Back Up Trust.

We will continue to provide updates on the how the pair are getting on and you can also follow Ed and Mike’s journey on their blog and Instagram.
