The Ride for Water fundraiser took place on a beautiful Spring day on the Washington and Old Dominion bike trail.  A team of club members and friends together rode a total of several hundred miles and raised about $1500 for the club's Uganda water project (described under the International Service Projects tab). The proceeds will go towards providing water to two schools in Kanoni , Uganda where we were able to provide three schools with potable water earlier this year.
