Join us on September 26th + 27th for Altitude: The Ride for Himalayan Life. This marks our first annual ride for Himalayan Life. Altitude will support and raise funds for Himalayan Life’s Education programs.

Whether you cycle, walk or run 5K, 10K, 50K or even more: join us to raise $45,000 for Himalayan Life’s Education programs! 

Four hours from Yangri, up a treacherous footpath that leads through many river crossings and steep Himalayan slopes, you will find the village of Larke. 45 students from this village are enrolled at the Yangri Academic Centre and normally live in the school hostel during the year. Due to COVID-19, not even our Distributed Teaching efforts have made it to Larke due to its remoteness. We are bringing the children down to stay at the hostel in an isolated bubble, so they can continue their education. 

Education, including full-time care, housing and food, costs roughly $1,000 per child for a year. That’s $3 per day for making all the difference in the world to a child in the Himalayas! 

The goal of Altitude is to raise $45,000, which will allow the Larke kids to pursue their education, regardless of the pandemic. 

Join a team or create your own with friends and family. Record and report your distance cycled on September 26th + 27th to your team leader; you can choose to cycle one or both days.

You can ride individually or you can organize to ride with your team or a few team members!
