OCENET staff rally for the Education Foundation of Ottawa

 
 

 Team KHAN-ucks (l-r)
Kari Hanes, Geoff Best and Kevin Orange

For a few weeks this coming summer, three adventuresome OCENET staff will take on 10,000 kilometers through 12 different countries in a 19-year-old Toyota Yaris to raise funds for the Education Foundation of Ottawa.

They are tackling the Mongol Rally and will start in Prague, travel though many borders, cross Mongolia, and finish in Russia. There’s no backup, no support, and no set route; just their team (and almost 500 other rally teams following their own routes!) in a tiny car with a 1200cc engine the team bought in England.

Team KHAN-ucks have been busy preparing by learning about map-reading and navigation with a compass, brushing up on shifting gears on a manual transmission, as well as basic car maintenance.

The rally team wishes to thank the students and staff at Gloucester High School for their help in setting up a website and helping to promote this charity rally.
