Event description

Description

On Saturday, August 26, The Water Ride will be taking place at Confluence Brewing Company and taking you around the Des Moines trails. Join us in riding for a cause, and help raise awareness and funds to support our water projects in Ghana, Africa.

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, Confluence, and Guru BBQ.

Over the past four years, the money raised through various Water Ride events have helped us fund three wells in Ghana, where we hope to continue installing additional wells, and empower the community to assess 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 start a school that would house over 150 kids. To date, over $22,000 has been raised thanks to an amazing community.
