    • Wheels4Water 2015 Ride Recap

      This past June, the Wheels4Water team completed their second ride to help marginalized people groups gain clean water and sanitation for life. The 2014 ride benefitted a community in Uganda, while the 2015 ride benefitted a school in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – a region that has been devastated by lack of clean water and inadequate sanitation for generations. At the end of the ride, the team was astonished to learn that over $60,000 had been raised, giving clean water to almost 1,500 people FOR LIFE. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported the ride both financially and through encouragement, and look for more updates on our official site.
