Educate, Inspire, Empower
This coming November, the impossible2Possible (i2P) Youth Ambassador team will travel to Rajasthan, the largest state of the Republic of India. The 5th stage of the i2P World Expedition Series (W.E.S.) will venture through the region of the Thar Desert – also known as the “Great Indian Desert”. It is the world’s seventh largest and one of the most inhospitable deserts on the planet. The Thar Desert is known for three distinct regions, the Thar – with Sand dunes eclipsing 150 meters, the plains, and the Aravalli range – with peaks topping 1700 meters.
Four Youth Ambassadors will join Ray Zahab, and fellow i2P adventurers, teachers and doctors on a 7-day running expedition covering up to 290 kilometers through the vast & expansive Thar Desert, near the northwestern edge of India.
Youth Ambassadors will run an average of a marathon per day for one week in a quest to experience this incredible country and communicate their adventure with youth all over the world. This diverse and contrasting landscape will ensure that this i2P Youth Expedition will be the toughest to date, and will require incredible preparation to guarantee a successful expedition.
More details on the entire event and its scope can be found on the India 2011 website.
