LAGSRIDE Brings Clean Water to Hundreds of Families!

My sincere gratitude to all who joined in the fun on the second annual LAGSRIDE Poker Run to benefit Self-Help International. In addition to having a great day for a bike ride and lots of fun along the way, we raised enough to bring clean water to two more villages in rural Nicaragua!

In Nicaragua, 60% of children under the age of 5 have been treated for diarrhea in the past two weeks alone due to unsafe drinking water. These illnesses are completely preventable by installing a simple PVC chlorination system.

By participating in LAGSRIDE, you gave the gift of clean water to two more rural villages. Thousands of people will be able to lead healthier, more productive lives thanks to you!
