Meet Eleanor Allen and Cycling For Water

PEOPLE WITHOUT WATER

THE CRISIS

Having drinking water is a basic necessity that many of us take for granted, but nearly 1 in 3 people in the world lack access to clean water.

Water For People is committed to reaching everyone with water and sanitation services, forever.

"My passion is helping people improve their quality of life by having sustainable access to water and sanitation. I hope that this race can amplify our work and our message, to further achieve our mission – especially to improve life for women and girls as they are disproportionately affected by inadequate water and sanitation."

2019 RACE ACROSS AMERICA

The 2019 Cycling for Water Race Across America team took on the world’s toughest bike race – traveling 3,000+ miles coast to coast in just over seven days – to raise awareness and money for Water For People. Eleanor Allen was a rider along with three teammates (Jeff Boltz, Lou Barinka, and Walt Migdal) from EA Engineering, Science, & Technology, Inc., PBC. A team from EA also did the 2017 RAAM as their first cycling fundraiser for Water For People.  

Team Cycling for Water raised nearly $100,000 for Water For People in 2019 and is going for that goal again in 2021!
