Quad Missions Worldwide is a collection of long-distance rides via ATV that aims to raise money for UNICEF. These missions are run by Paul Varty, who hopes to raise 50,000 pounds ($80,668). He just completed a 1,739-mile ride from London to Marbella, Spain on his street-modified Yamaha Raptor 700r. The next leg of his journey will be to the Western Sahara and back on his Suzuki King Quad 700.

This is what Varty sums up as his inspiration for the adventure: “Fill your mind with light, happiness, hope, feelings of security and strength, and soon your life will reflect these qualities. Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”
