Samaritans Purse

This may be of interest to many out there, especially if you have any church affiliation. Samaritans purse organizes motorcycle rides to bring awarness to the need for clean drinking water to the people that need it around the world.
It costs something in the area of $100 to provide a bio-sand water filter for a family to obtain clean drinking water.
Check out the website at samaritanspurse.ca and click on "turn on the tap" and you will find info on the ride.
It looked like a cool thing a year ago and I know my wife and I will go with a few other couples from around here.
Raise some money for a good cause and meet some folks on scoots!

you bet rcacs!
I know Morden is a bit of a hike for the calgary ride! I used to live in Minnedosa, so I am familiar with the Province.
I thought it might be nice to post something that would add to the purpose of riding and be a good cause.
Check out the site and spread the idea..
