Mission Statement

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

My talent is riding really long wheelies on my bicycle. How long? World record distance to be exact. 16 miles in under 1 hour! Over the next few months I'm going to be training hard and promoting the Wheelie For Water campaign.

This clean water crisis needs to be brought to the world stage, and it's my mission to get the word out with a somewhat captivating and unique skill. Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped. This year the focus is on one of the poorest states in India and I want to make a very positive impact on the lives of the "untouchables" that deserve this clean water.

Thank you, Chris Barnett
