United in Humanity // RIDE4WATER
You come home after an intense training session, you feel exhausted, you are hot. You drink water, cool and straight from the tap. You throw your sweaty sportswear into the washing machine and put on some coffee water. Then it's time for a shower. The water rushes by you, splashes on your head. You brush your teeth while the water runs.
For us, having access to water is so normal that we don't even think about how much water we use every day, drink, but also simply let run down the drain.
Other people know exactly how much water they use. What is normal for us is still luxury for many people around the globe. Access to fresh drinking water is limited in many countries.
In Uganda, for example, not everyone has access to clean drinking water. Viva con Agua wants to change that. Viva con Agua has already drawn attention to the global water situation with campaigns in the past. Now the Hamburg-based organisation wants to collect donations with its latest project, the Ride4Water, and not only provide schools and communities in Uganda with drinking water, but also create a new awareness for hygiene through local hygiene projects.
The Ride4Water is a cycling event that aims to raise awareness about the global shortage of drinking water.
From July 5 to 11, we will ride together as many kilometers as we can on our bikes and create awareness for Viva con Agua's fundraising goal. All participants are virtually connected, can see how many kilometers have been cycled and can also join teams.
We at Ryzon are also taking part in this campaign and have created a team to collect kilometers together.
How to join Team Ryzon
The following link will take you directly to our team. Register at Ride4Water using the link, connect your profile to your Strava account (optional) and join our team. From July 5 to 11, ride as many kilometers as you can on your bike and track them, manually or via Strava, on the Ride4Water portal. Share the event (#RIDE4WATER) on Instagram and link us (@ryzon_apparel) and Viva con Agua (@vivaconagua).
With all the excitement about virtual solutions, we are even more excited that finally analog meetings are possible again. That's why we have planned an extra Cycling Unit for July 10, where we will meet to ride together in the Cologne area for the Ride4Water. Info about this can be found in our newsletter and on our social media channels.
Ride together, donate together
Join our team now and ride together with us for Viva con Agua. We would be happy if you decide to donate to the charity. Team Ryzon will also donate an amount to Hamburg at the end of the week.
The goal of Viva con Agua is to collect a total of 50.000€ to support the program "One WASH Uganda" with 6 newly built boreholes and to be able to train so called "Water User Committees".
