We can help you become a wavemaker in the world and share our adventures and experience in the US and abroad. We  have limited sponsored slots each school year to visit your school, speak about local and global water issues and leave you with steps you can take individually and in your school to become part of the solution.

Schools, businesses, and community groups are invited to raise funds through individual fundraising or by joining 4 Miles 4 Water each May in Cleveland. Your drop in the bucket really does add up to make our safe water projects happen in east Africa each year.
