The WaterAid Mountain Bike Ride in Marin, California
Peter Moritzburke has been an avid mountain biker for years, but in 2008, he decided to mountain bike to make a difference. With the help of his wife Kelly, he organized the first WaterAid Mountain Bike Ride in Marin, California. The event raised $3,000 - enough to build a well that provides water for 250-300 people - and was “such a blast” that the ride became an annual event.
For Peter Moritzburke, the fundraiser is a “great way to put the activity I love to good use.”
