Host your very own fundraising event and make a positive difference in the lives of others.

What started as a school project for Ryan is now the world’s project. Together, we have helped bring clean water and improved sanitation to over 1,507,911 people!

I just love hearing more examples of people who just do what they want to do and don’t care if it’s not going to fix the entire problem or not going to make the biggest impact on the world, but are naïve enough to do what I did when I was six. And it’s amazing what can happen over time.

— Ryan Hreljac

It was over a decade ago when I first heard Ryan’s story while in elementary school. As children, it was eye-opening to learn about the need for clean water, and to see Ryan, someone our own age, have such a strong passion to drive change was inspiring. This message never left me over the years as I pursued my own passion in the health field. Safe water and better health go hand-in-hand in improving lives and empowering communities. After many years since my first classroom fundraiser, I wanted to get reinvolved with the Foundation through what I felt was a fun way to gather friends to each play a role in helping end the global water crisis that still affects our world today. And thus, that was how the Annual Beach Volleyball Tournament for Ryan’s Well began in Ottawa! As Ryan always says, ‘A community of ordinary people can do extraordinary things!

—Wendy Zhang, 3rd Party Fundraiser
