Rudy Van Prooyen Rides for Water
"I am only sleeping 5 hours a night and spend 12 hours a day in the saddle with very few days off. I just finished 3,000 miles in the USA and now am riding another 4,000 miles across Europe, bringing my total miles to 29,000 since partnering with Blue Planet Network four years ago. I am doing this because I believe that everyone should have access to safe drinking water. I know that with only $30 one person can drink clean water for nearly a lifetime. If I can raise $10,000 I know that I am building a better world for so many to enjoy." Help support Rudy's 2013 Blue Planet Ride and 330 children and families will have safe drinking water.
