Last year, Donna DeWick and Caroline Boyes, of London, UK trained extensively and participated in The Rallye Aicha des Gazelles (Rally of the Gazelles), a two week, all-women rally through the landscapes and deserts of Morocco. Donna and Caroline used this opportunity to support women survivors of war and raised over $2000 for Women for Women International’s programs.
