Why We Ride
Kids Across Cultures cares about kids. Proceeds from previous rides had far reaching impact! Along with your help, we’ve been able to provide hunger relief to the Horn of Africa and to Tarahumara Indians in Mexico, give educational opportunities for children in S.E. Asia, and provide mosquito nets for thousands of kids in Zanzibar who are susceptible to malaria. These were just a few of the ways the Tour de Agua made a difference. THANK YOU riders & sponsors! By riding the Tour de Agua, you become part of a cycle of change! Check out kidsacrosscultures.org.
In 2018, the proceeds from the Tour de Agua will be used to bring clean water to children & families around the world. It’s no secret that a lack of clean drinking water in most parts of the world is destroying the lives and future of children and their families.
Each year 3.5 million deaths occur because of unsanitary water. Most of those deaths occur in rural, poverty stricken areas and the majority among children.
443 Million school days are lost each year to water related illness which perpetuates a lack of education and poverty.
The list of suffering due to water related illness and disease goes on! We want to partner with you to bring an end to this problem for as many children as possible!
We want to provide families with a CWF, “Ceramic Water Filter” filtration system that will produce clean safe drinking water for a family for 3-5 years!
When unfiltered water is poured through the proprietary ceramic membrane, 99.9% of bacteria and pathogens are removed and destroyed.
Join us in our efforts! Ride for the change!
