The Greaseball Challenge charity car rally is kicking off this week with a launch party on Thursday and to celebrate Emily Horgan and her team have launched the official Greaseball website and blog. Four teams are leaving from Washington, D.C. in two Mercedes, a VW Rabbit and a van while a fifth team departs from Denver, Colorado in a pick-up. Grease for fuel is being supplied this week by the World Bank and the Hard Rock cafe.
Emily Horgan, making the world a better place, one charity rally at a time!
Emily Horgan, Director of the Greaseball Challenge, ready for adventure!
The first ever Greaseball Challenge charity car rally will take place in April when five teams will drive from the U.S. to Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama in under four weeks promoting biofuels and green adventure travel. Designed to show that you can use locally-available fuels as viable alternatives to petroleum fuels, the participating Greaseballers are out to have a good time and promote a great cause.
It's time again to check in with our biodiesel-loving Panamericana 2006 team, driving from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego in three green Volkswagen SUVs in 15 days. You can see what they were up to recently here, or jump into the most recent news from the team's daily (belated) updates below.
