The mission of The Move Project is to pursue holistic poverty alleviation one project at a time.
Our strategy is to create repeatable, sustainable projects that are realized through community engagement.
Our goal is to raise awareness and present opportunities for others to join the pursuit of poverty alleviation through a clear call to action.
To this end, we host annual bike rides for clean water, both indoor and outdoor. We have partnered with the Indianola YMCA to bring our signature event, The Water Ride, indoors. Our latest Indoor Water Ride, held on Saturday, April 11th was a huge success! We saw 77 people jump on a stationary bikes and pedal for clean water, raising just over $2,100!! Because of our generous sponsors, 100% of all event proceeds from The Water Ride (both indoor and outdoor) go directly to our ongoing projects in Ghana, West Africa.
Since the Water Ride's inception, we have had over 370 people participate and a total of $21,353.47 has been raised, and we've installed three wells to provide access to clean water for villages that have NEVER had access!
We couldn't be more thrilled about this progress and we have YOU to thank! We are so grateful for your participation over the years and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming ride.
If you haven't ridden in a Water Ride event yet, don't worry. We have our annual outdoor event coming up on Saturday, May 16th and we would love to have you ride. Click the Register Now button below to purchase your ticket today.
If you aren't local to Des Moines or aren't available but still want to participate, you can give using the "Donation" ticket!
Educational opportunities will be presented to inform riders on the need and importance of clean water as well as the water projects we are currently working on and are planning for the future.
