Jon Rose and Hurley athletes Carissa Moore, Rob Machado, Conner Coffin, Bob Burnquist, Actress Rosario Dawson, Chefs Alex Atala and Sam Talbot will travel to nations in need to bring clean-water access to 100,000 people.
In correspondence with World Water Day 2014, Hurley will work with Waves For Water to coordinate one of the largest single-day water relief efforts in history. Five groups of Clean Water Couriers will lead missions to five different parts of the globe: Brazil, Haiti, Indonesia, Liberia and Nicaragua. Each team of key advocates will include Hurley surfers and ambassadors to participate in the distribution of water filtration systems. The teams will bring with them a total of 1,000 water filters for a single-day activation on March 22, with capacity to provide clean-water access for 100,000 people.
“We typically work in a very lean and covert fashion to maximize our efficiency on the ground, but since this specific project is just as much about awareness as it is action, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to bring some of our longtime friends and advocates – Carissa Moore, Rosario Dawson, Rob Machado, Adrian Buchan, Bob Burnquist, Alex Atala and more – along for the ride,” says Waves For Water Founder Jon Rose.
The Clean Water Courier teams will be assembled as follows:
Guga Ketzer - Loducca
Alex Atala - Brazilian Chef who runs the restaurant D.O.M.
Rob Machado – Hurley Brand Ambassador
Bob Burnquist – Hurley Brand Ambassador
Jon Rose – Waves For Water Founder
