WHAT: Wheels for Wells is inviting Calgary residents to bike 10km, 30km, 50km or 90km to raise awareness and funds for the World Vision Canada "Build A Well" project in Sudan.
Worldwide, 660 million people are lacking clean water. Calgary native Alex Weber, 14, believes that providing all of them with this life-giving necessity is an attainable goal. That's why he created Wheels for Wells, which since 2012 has raised $177,000 for World Vision water projects in Kenya, Somalia, Sudan and Mauritania.
This year, a photo booth and live music will create a festive atmosphere as one community comes together to help another.
