Michael & Travis reached out to Well Aware in 2015 and expressed interest in turning their Ironman 70.3 race into a fundraiser to help bring clean water for all. We are so thankful to Michael & Travis for their dedication. Read below to learn more about them!
Water is life. Pure and simple. It is something that we as Americans can often take for granted. However, the reality is that water is necessary for a thriving community, and it remains a true scarcity in many parts of the world. We, who have been blessed with so much, should seek to give back. One fantastic way to do that is to support a Texas-based organization whose goal is to provide life to others. We whole-heartedly agree with and support Well Aware’s mission to not only provide clean water to groups in need, but to do it in a way that drives economic development and builds self-sufficient communities.Fund-Raising Goal: Help us raise our goal of $2,000.00.
100% of the funds will go to Well Aware!
