Welcome, and Thank You for considering my fund raising efforts this year with the Water Buffalos “Ride With Purpose”. Each year, a rag tag group of water and wastewater professionals (including yours truly) get together and raise money while riding our motorcycles to 2 national conferences: the AWWA’s "ACE” and WEF’s “WEFTEC”. The funds raised by this group go to Water For People to support projects in developing countries for safe water and sanitation needs. Over the past 10 years we have raised over $820,000. This year marks my 11th year working with Water For People: A charity that I strongly believe in and support. Please join me and my fellow Buffalos as we continue to support Water For People and future projects. Your charitable contribution will provide for the water, sanitation and health needs of some of the most impoverished people of the world. Please visit www.waterforpeople.org to find out more about this worthwhile cause and www.ridewithpurpose.org to find out more about The Water Buffalos. Thank you so much for being part of “The Ride”.
