Borneo Rhino Challenge Update


SOS Rhino officially opened registration on May 1st for our 2004 fundraising event, the Borneo Rhino Challenge. After two months, the excitement is palpable as we promote the Challenge throughout the Chicago area. The irony is the first two interested participants live in Australia! Come on, Chicago, help support your local horny non-profit!

The Challenge is a 12 day event to be held May, 2004. Trek up Mt. Kinabalu and cycle along the northern tip of Borneo. There will be sites to keep you going and an opportunity, after reaching your course goals, to take in the cultures, landscapes and unique animals of the great state of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo adventure capital of South East Asia. Along the way you will get a personal introduction to the last of the shy hairy rhinos of Borneo.

Our goal is to secure 10 people for the event with partner, London based Save the Rhino, bringing in another 10 for a total of 20 participants. We are working with area health clubs such as Holmes Place, Lake Shore Athletic Club, Gold Coast Multiplex, Lincoln Park Athletic Club and Crunch Fitness in an effort to promote the event with amateur athletes. We wish to thank the above mentioned clubs for their interest and assistance in promoting the Challenge.

The total cost of the Challenge including airfare and ground package is $4,000. The minimum sponsorship fee of $2,000 will go directly to SOS Rhino’s Sumatran rhino project in Borneo. Registration forms are available on-line at our website, Please note a deposit of $400 is due at time of registration to secure your place on the team. Credit cards are accepted.
