In June 2016, I will take my inaugural ride with a special group of motorcycling water professionals known as the Water Buffalos. What makes these water professionals so special is that they, Ride With Purpose, http://www.ridewithpurpose.org/. The purpose is to raise funds to help two charity organizations: Water For People and Community Engineering Corps. Water For People, https://www.waterforpeople.org/, develops safe drinking water sources and sanitation facilities in developing countries. Community Engineering Corps, http://www.communityengineeringcorps.org/, help underserved communities in the United States meet their infrastructure needs and improve each community member’s quality of life. This year will mark the 11th Ride With Purpose as the Water Buffalos make their way to Chicago in June for ACE 2016 then in September to New Orleans for WEFTEC 2016. One thing the Herd will not have to worry about on the rides is access to safe drinking water or sanitation facilities. I challenge each person to think about the first thing they did when they got up in the morning, used the restroom or grabbed a glass of water (coffee counts). At the end of the day, did you do the same thing, ok maybe not the coffee. I ask you to think about quality of life without your current water and wastewater system, then donate what you are able. A little donation will go a long way in helping the work of these two great organizations.
