The Rainforest Trust

From April 2016 to Feb 2017, brothers and ultra runners Eric Chan and Paul Chan will be making an attempt on the world record for Most Desert Races Ran In One Year that spans 6 continents, racing in some of the toughest and most grueling ultra marathons on the planet. As part of their world record attempt, they will be raising money for rainforest conservation, an issue they are passionate about. They are just two people, but they want to do their part to make a difference. Climate Change affects all of us. Not only does it pose a danger to our way of life, but also threatens to destroy everything we love on this planet. In the end, they hope their desert journey will help to highlight what can happen to our environment if we don’t take care of the planet
