BUXTON, Maine — Local IT solutions company ITS Inc. will embark on an 1,000-mile journey from the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of Lake Michigan to help bring clean water and sanitation to 1,000 citizens of Lira, Uganda.
Buxton-based ITS has teamed up with Wheels4Water, a non-profit organization dedicated to making clean water available to the Ugandan community. Participants will ride 1,000-miles over the next two weeks from Boston to Chicago as part of this fresh-water initiative.
ITS Inc. is proud to be a major sponsor of the ride and has set a fundraising goal of over $10,000. A donation of forty dollars will give one person access to clean water and sanitation for a lifetime. “We see this effort as a way we can show our corporate belief in giving back and making a difference in the world,” said ITS President and COO Rob Connary.
Rob’s son Ryan is participating in the ride, while Rob is traveling close behind in a pace car for needed parts and emergency repairs. This father-son duo is dedicated to raising awareness to fund water, sanitation and hygiene programs in Uganda.
