Ride For Water

“The craziest thing we can do is nothing.”

A group of 10 college students joined Ride For Water for the 2019 trek. They will bike across America in hopes to raise awareness and money for the global water crisis.

They have 6 riders along with, a car filled with supplies driven by other students to ensure their journey goes as smoothly as possible!

Worldwide, there are 663 million people living without clean water and Ride For Water wants to help change that. Entering year 7 of the Ride For Water campaign, they have since raised $350,000 for clean water projects.

A strong partnership with charity: water has ensured 100% of donations go directly to the cause and they have created wells for many communities. This years group is currently working their way to the east coast. The ride will have consisted of 3,400+ miles across 12 different states once finished.
