WHAT ARE WE DOING?
In March 2016, the Treasure Island Gazelles will compete in the “Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles” organized by Maienga for the Charity “Coeur de Gazelles Foundation” for over 25 years. It is the world’s only all-female Moto-Cross rally across the Western Sahara. Proceeds from the event are used to send teams of medical doctors into the Sahara to provide basic medical care to Moroccan women and children. The winner is the team that travels the least distance over the course of the two-week event
