Mission Statement

785 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water. As the world suffers at the hands of COVID-19, we see, now more than ever, the importance of hand-washing and hygiene. Not only does clean water mean health and wellness for communities, it provides them with hope, education, opportunity, and it empowers women and children.

As a group of college students passionate about the water crisis, our original plan was to cycle across the country this summer to raise money and awareness for clean water. However, due to the global pandemic we are facing, we are unable to do so.We will no longer be riding from West Coast to East Coast, but this hasn’t changed our drive and our passion for clean water. That is why, while partnering with atlasGO,  we launched Ride for Water GO–a virtual race where we log miles and record workouts to raise money and awareness for the global water crisis.  goal over the course of Ride for Water GO is to complete 30,000 miles and raise $30,000 all in the name of clean water.

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.  A donation of $40 can give someone clean water for the rest of his/her life. Any donation of any size can contribute to a dramatic change in the trajectories of whole communities by giving them not only clean water, but also hope, opportunity, health, and so much more.

COVID-19 stopped us from cycling coast to coast this year, but it hasn't stopped our commitment to clean water. Join us in the fight against the global water crisis by donating today.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
