Brittany App & Garrett Russell will bicycle across this massive continent in the Fall of 2010 to raise awareness of our Global Water Crisis, and to raise funds to provide fresh water to those who need it most. They will follow the Southern Tier – a route established by the Adventure Cycling Association – covering 3,159 miles between San Diego, California and St. Augustine, Florida. They will give themselves three months to complete the journey – averaging 37 miles a day. Brittany, photojournalist extraordinaire, will write, shoot, and blog – daily. She will interview and photograph people along the way who have earned local or regional recognition for inspiring people to care about the planet. After the journey, She will work to have the words and images published as a book.  Garrett, film-maker extraordinaire, will be creating a documentary about the journey. The two will ride to raise awareness about the global water crisis, and to raise money for WaterAid.  Their fundraising goal is $20,000. WaterAid is an incredible international charity that works in Africa and Asia to provide the world’s poorest people with their most basic need: access to safe water and effective sanitation.

There will be two big fund-raising events to help this amazing cause. the first one will be held at Level 4 Restaurant and Lounge. The address is 1216 Park St. in Paso Robles. The event will go from 6pm-10pm on Thursday, August 12. The other event will be held at Native Lounge, 1823 Chorro St. on Thursday August 19 from 7-10:30pm. Both events will have a live auction, a live photo booth, drink specials and live music! It should be a great time! $5 dollar donations to this great cause at the door. Come out, have fun and support this cause.

Brittany joins us on the show and explains the cause she’s cycling for, her route across the US and even the diet needed for the journey
