On May 14, 2017, I will be starting a cross-country backpacking journey to show the hardships people have who do not have access to clean drinking water. I will be starting in Scotch Plains, NJ, heading north to volunteer in Flint, MI, and finally heading west to end in San Francisco. In total, this will be 3,250 miles with the hopes of finishing in 5-6 months.
