Wheels for Water

by Dr. Christiaan Morssink

The Wheels for Water bike ride was held on May 21, 2022.

Our inaugural fun(d) raiser bike ride, organized in tandem with the Engineers Without Borders, was a success, a sweaty success (it was hot), but a success. We intended to keep it small, as a test so to speak.

We did raise some funds; we did learn a lot about liability waivers; we learned how to improve the promoting part and the payment/donating part; we learned to make sure folks brought locks for their bikes.

We made some friends and we spread the word.

The venue for ‘hanging out’ — Consohocken Brewing Company  — let us occupy a corner, and our friend Christian Rwakazina from the Xylem Cycles got a word in as well.

The pictures tell the story.

Special thank you’s to Tom McKeon and Torin Johnson for organizing the event!

Dr. Morssink is the President of the Global Water Alliance and his interests are as varied and flowing as water itself, such as: the effects of the built environment on health, the elimination of health disparities, urban farming to end hunger, and the campaign to ban and clear landmines and cluster bombs in communities around the world. Water is his first love.
