What is the craziest thing you’ve even done for something you care about?
Would you ever consider driving from London to Mongolia for it?
How about in an ambulance…?
Insane as that sounds, that’s what our friends the MBAdventurists are doing: from yesterday afternoon they will be racing from London to Mongolia (10,000 miles!) in an ambulance that will be donated upon their arrival.
Here is the ubiCabs team with the MBAdventurists just before they left!

Our friends’ inspiration to drive across 1/3 of the Earth’s surface stems from their participation in a charity adventure called the Mongol Rally, which supports The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF). The CNCF seeks to protect Mongolian and Vietnamese children from exploitation while providing them support and education opportunities. Most contestants drive in a car with an engine smaller than a litre- however, the journey may also be tackled in emergency vehicles, which are greatly needed in Mongolia.
In addition, the MBAdventurists are also supporting the John Smith Memorial Trust, a body that funds a Fellowship Programme to introduce young budding leaders to democratic practices of the UK’s past with the purpose of helping them chose models of governance that will benefit their societies.
We will be following the MBAdventurists’ progress on our Facebook page, so check back often! If you would like to support their cause, you can do so by clicking here.
Best of luck to the MBAdventurists!
