This is a fundraiser to raise money for worthy causes.
Here's some more information about it:
It's time for another Phoenix Perú Challenge! Our first Challenge of 2012 will be a 2 day trek from February 17 to the 18 on the beach, but it's far from a vacation! Try trekking 28km (17miles) in temperatures over 40C (100F) through the Atacama Desert, the driest place in the world. Some places in the desert have no record of rain...it's that dry! Please donate whatever you can, every little bit helps and will go towards these gorgeous children that we teach here in Perú. Thank you.
