Radio X - The Rickshaw Run

Radio X - The Rickshaw Run

When you think of fundraising and helping others less fortunate than yourself, do you think of perhaps a 'sponsored marathon', 'half marathon', 'parachute jump' or, do you think that you'll drive 3,500 KM's in a 'Rickshaw', across India, from the north down to the south of the country, in 14 days or less, without any support mechanism?

Well, that's what Leslie Eberdt plans to do along with her partner, Antoine. Their goal is to help 8 carefully selected young ladies from India's poorest regions - who have great potential - but only if they had the opportunity - to each attend a full 3 year university education, totally covered by Leslie and Antoine's efforts.

How do they plan on navigating? Sleeping? And covering 3,500 KM's in a contraption that has a max speed of just 55 KM/h in less than 14 days? Find out how Leslie, the 'Green Light For Girls' project and Boston University in Brussels are working together on providing new futures and prospects for these young women in India
