In The Water For Water: Kids helping Kids

Take the swim challenge. Swim across the Missouri (approx 1 mile) or across the bay (approx 1/4 mile) at Dock 44 to help raise money for non-profit Champions House foundation. Champions House helps the orphans and poor by drilling clean water wells, providing food and health care for those the Hindu government calls “untouchables”. In The Water For Water (2013) raised money to drill 5 wells but there is still a waiting list of villages in need of clean water. This year we are offering a organized Missouri river for swimming enthusiast of all ages. Support boats and rest stops will be available for swimmers who dare take the challenge. Check out last year’s swim and present projects at www.championshouse.org. To swim or to support swimmers, contact Linda DeHaai at 605-680-4620.
