Cowboy Len Crow and his trusted horse, Music, takes a moment from his ride to pose for a photo.

Cowboy Len Crow is riding from Alaska to Mexico to raise money for orphans in Mexico, Guatemala, Cambodia, India, and the Philippines.

“Let me pull my horse over so I don’t get charged with distracted driving,” Len Crow says from his cellphone.

He’s riding horseback from northern Alaska to Guadalajara, Mexico – an 11,000-kilometre trek – in the hopes of raising $1 million for orphanages in five countries.

The orphanages in Mexico, Philippines, India, Guatemala and Cambodia are predominantly home to abandoned or abused children. Crow said three youngsters at one of his orphanages in Cambodia were rescued from a garbage dump.

“I don’t have a lot of abilities or talents, but I do know how to sit on a horse,” says Crow, from Orillia, Ont., explaining why he’s chosen his mode of transport for his charity run.
