WOW! Just about to the Goal!
April 21, 2016
Thank you in advance, for your support of my fund raising efforts this year with the Water Buffalos "Ride with Purpose" 2016! Each year a group of water and wastewater professionals get together and raise money while riding motorcycles to AWWA's Annual Conference and Exposition "ACE”. My inaugural ride was to Denver in 2013. Things got a little out hand after that, and I found myself in Boston in 2014. I am directionally challenged, so after a 4000+ mile roundtrip back home, I was absolutely sure I need to see the other coast in 2015 and rode to Anaheim, CA. This year is the 11th anniversary of "The Ride", and Chicago it is! Maybe we will have to get there from Iowa via Key West!
Over the past 10 years the group has raised well over a half million dollars to help people with something that many of us take for granted daily. The funds raised by this group go to other charity organizations; Water For People, to support their projects in developing countries for safe water and sanitation solutions, and new this year the Community Engineering Corps a coalition of different organizations helping accomplish the same things domestically here in the United States.
The number of people who are trying to talk you out of some of your money for one cause or another is constantly growing. I do however hope that you take some time to learn more about the work that this group does, and then find it in yourself to donate. In the past three years you all have helped me raise nearly $10,000 for the cause! That is awesome!

THANK YOU for Your Help & as always, Keep the Shiny Side Up!
