The Water Trotter Urban Challenge is a fun and challenging scavenger hunt over a distance of approximately three miles. Teams of two will solve 9 out of 12 clues while exploring Austin’s local neighborhoods, the Capitol, and the University of Texas campus. Water Trotter is designed to emphasize the importance of clean water, especially in developing countries.

Sponsorship and ticket sales from this event help the EWB-USA Greater Austin chapter raise resources to construct vital water infrastructure programs in both Peru & Guatemala.

Registration gets you a t-shirt, a goodie bag, and the chance at winning AWESOME PRIZES from Alamo Drafthouse, Texas Stars, Uchi, Soup Peddler, Chipotle, and more (see below)!

Everyone is welcome: students, professionals, families, and beyond!

Update from our first Peru CAMBIAR project in Huasta

img_0687.jpgThis is what your support of EWB-USA Greater Autin Chapter has accomplished! We visited our first Peru CAMBIAR project in Huasta this last week and learned they used our irrigation system in Campo Coriz last year to yield ~4000 soles worth of quinoa to feed students in Peru through the Vaso de Leche program. The next harvest will be this field of healthy corn. It may not look like much but to this community, it is huge. Please consider donating to our ongoing projects in Santa Cruz and Pacllash to help more impoverished communities in rural Peru!
