Row for Water with Katie Spotz
In December, 21-year old Katie Spotz set off on the adventure of a lifetime — a solo row across the Atlantic Ocean! She is now over halfway between Africa and South America. After 2,500 miles and 70-100 days alone at sea, she will become the youngest person ever to row an ocean solo and the first American to row from Africa to South America.
But this row is about more than ocean adventure, world records and personal challenges. It's about something much more important: safe drinking water. That's why Katie partnered with the Blue Planet Run Foundation to help raise funds for sustainable safe drinking water projects all over the world. Unsafe drinking water is the leading cause of sickness, disease and death worldwide — but it's a problem that, working together, we can solve.
For the three months Katie is rowing, she will keep you posted on her progress on her web site. Be sure to check back often for updates and more information.
