150 MILES: RIDE FOR WATER
* 780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people.
* 3.41 million people die from water, sanitation and hygiene-related causes each year.
* The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.
* An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day.
