A couple of girls, 2.5 thousand miles, 6 days... It can only mean one thing...

The TOP SECRET 2015 Cannonball Run is back!

Bursting onto the scene in 2002, the Cannonball Run Europe (look out for the #topsecret hashtag on Twitter as they'll be trending) sees its participants engaging in a rally across Europe for 6 days. The twist is that for each of the 6 days, drivers have no idea as to where their next destination will be.

The perfect combination of driving and luxury tourism for petrol heads, this event acts as a bucket list challenge for many of its participants and generates global participation (very pleased to learn there's an Aussie team this year!).

But wait! There's more...

Enter the all-female racing dream team (follow their progress via the #gogirl hashtag on Twitter): Kaz Aston and Jasmine Palmer.

This dynamic duo will also be driving to raise awareness for multiple sclerosis (MS), a neurological condition that impacts an estimated 2.5 million globally.

Children, the elderly... while most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40 years old, this condition affects all ages and both sexes.

Aston has lived with MS for over two decades now and is thrilled to be assisting others with the condition thanks to the Cannonball Run.

"Each day will be an exciting adventure into the unknown. Driving across different countries and to a new destination every day is thrilling and people can follow team #gogirl via Twitter using the #gogirl and #MSClearGuide hashtags to help those with MS," says Aston.

To celebrate the girls' entry, Monarchy Online has launched the new UK #gogirl awards for 2015 to highlight the work of inspirational women of all ages. To honour their outstanding efforts and assistance in inspiring others to 'make a difference' on a global scale.

Monarchy Online is a free global internet community and resource for people of all ages. It uses social media as a way to inform and educate people as to what the modern monarchy is and does for society in a wider sense.

While the date of the awards is being kept a secret, we can tell you that it will take place later this year and entry will be open to all females over 10 years of age.

"Monarchy Online feels the amazing efforts of younger females should be recognised to maintain and reward their inspirational efforts," says Aston.
