Smiles & Miles consider ourselves privileged to be able to roam the world as we do. We are fortunate to have a roof over our heads, healthy sustenance, endless learning opportunities, and a chance to do work that we enjoy. We have the resources and time to do some truly amazing things, albeit with lots of work and several compromises along the way.
We chose to take part in the Rickshaw Run because it seemed like a great opportunity to do something we’ve dreamed of – driving across India in an auto rickshaw. What an amazing way to see a fascinating country! We’re pleased that The Adventurists have created this unique opportunity. We’re also pleased that, like us, they quite like the world, adventuring in it, and giving something back. In fact, their efforts have contributed to raising over £5 million for charity.
Smiles & Miles contribute to our local and global communities in a number of ways and although connecting fundraising to our travels created a dilemma for us, we decided to take advantage of the interest surrounding our participation in the Rickshaw Run to draw some attention to a couple of causes that we support:
We’re thrilled to report that our efforts to-date have raised a combined CDN$6,000 for these two worthwhile causes. A huge thank you to our donors for your generosity and support.

With generosity of spirit,
Tracey & Miles
