Welcome to the Ride High Foundation!
Fundraiser September 23
Thank you all for joining us for our fundraising event. Thanks also to all of you who made a online contribution. In February we will be distributing the funds in Nepal. We still have a few positions available for our Rishikesh to Kathmandu motorcycle tour. If you would like to join us a donation of $500 or more will give you a couple free bonus days to ride up to Kodari and meet the people who will receive your donations.
The Ride High Foundation (RHF) was created by friends long associated with adventure travel in the Himalaya and SE Asia, following the two major earthquakes in April of this year that has left much of Nepal in ruins, many in dire need of assistance, and a reconstruction period projected of 10 years.
Himalayan Roadrunners Motorcycle Tours, along with Dubbelju Motorcycle Rentals of San Francisco have teamed resources to help relief efforts in Nepal via the Ride High Foundation. The Foundation aims are to raise tax deductible donations from friends and clients of both companies and personally deliver needed raw materials and services to people who need it. This effort is ongoing. With offices on the East and West Coasts of the United States, and a base of operations and specialists in Kathmandu, relief materials are being sourced and delivered in Nepal to people who need it most.
Our Challenge: Getting relief materials into remote villages. The Foundation is currently raising donations to purchase reconstruction housing materials such as tarps, tents, corrugated metal roofing, and as well as food items and medical supplies.
