All proceeds from this event will be given to Compassion International for the purchase and distribution of Water of Life filters to families who do not have access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by drinking contaminated water is one of the single greatest killers of children in the developing world. These filters, which cost $79, can provide safe drinking water for a child and their entire family for a lifetime. They contain no moving or electronic parts and can provide over a million gallons of clean drinking water.
