Scotty’s Ride for Water
“It doesn’t matter how old you are or even if you have anything to give, you could help change the world for better,” Parker said.
“Every day 4,000 children die just from water — something so simple,” Parker said.
A 13-year-old pedaling 3,300 miles from Santa Monica, California to Charleston, South Carolina for safe water made a stop in Flagstaff Wednesday. Today is #YouthDay. This is what one young man is doing for the world.
See how Scotty is doing.
In Summer 2017, Scotty Parker will ride his bike across the country to raise money for safe water. He will ride from the Santa Monica Pier in California to Water Mission’s Headquarters in North Charleston, South Carolina. The ride will be 3,270 miles and will take just over 8 weeks. By supporting Scotty’s efforts for Water Mission, you are joining a community of passionate people around the world who see the valuable lives being lost every day and know that we cannot allow this to continue. Water Mission invests in the future by empowering communities around the world, providing them with the most basic necessity for survival: safe water.
