An epic, 17,000km charity drive from Berlin to Cape Town for the 2010 World Cup, and more importantly, in aid of the children of Africa. Sound crazy? Well, six daring (or perhaps idiotic) adventurers have signed on to undertake this amazing endeavor.
This is an intrepid voyage on a scale not seen since Ferdinand Magellan. The teams have scoured Berlin to find some of the worst, cheapest clunkers possible to drive through the deserts, savannahs, rain forests and metropolises of Africa. After negotiating the roads, paths and mudtracks on their route, all that is left for the teams to do is avoid being devoured by the native wildlife, and get to Cape Town in time for the World Cup.
Peruse the World Cup Trek website for more information. The World Cup Trek is being done in a spirit of fun and adventure, but is ultimately a fundraising venture for three amazing charitable organizations that envision the sport of football as a powerful means of assisting the children of Africa. See how you can help these organizations in Africa make a difference, while following along with this insane voyage!
