Katie Spotz

Katie Spotz is rowing across the Atlantic Ocean ... alone.
She's rowing to bring awareness to the global need for safe drinking water. It's 2,500 miles of open water from Dakar, Senegal to Cayenne, French Guiana. When she completes the three month journey (mid-March) she will be the youngest person ever to row across an ocean.

Katie hopes to inspire at least 1,000 people to make $30 donations to Blue Planet Run Foundation. Each $30 donation gives one individual a lifetime of safe drinking water. There are one billion people on our planet who lack access to safe, clean drinking water.

To be one of the people inspired by Katie, go to where you can also follow Katie's blog from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You can follow her on twitter at @katiespotz.

  1. Did you hear this on Rosie? If not maybe you can hear a replay this weekend. I loved her interview. C
