    Show up around 11:00 a.m. to register and get your Water Ride gear.

    Start riding your bicycle at 12:00 p.m from Confluence with riders throughout the community. Drink and food specials available throughout the route from our partners at 515 and Confluence Brewing.

    Over the past five years, the money raised through various Water Ride events have helped to fund three wells and the creation of a primary school in Ghana, where we will continue supporting and empowering the community, assessing additional needs to alleviate poverty. Funding also supports using the wells to host sanitation trainings that introduce basic sanitation standards in the communities & help us get funding to operate a school that will educate over 150 kids. To date, over $25,000 has been raised thanks to an amazing community.
