“I love challenges, especially endurance challenges where you push your mind over matter.”


Katie Spotz (1987-)

States Katie, “More than anything, this row was a way to raise funds and awareness for the billion+ people worldwide in need of safe drinking water. With the support from people following all the over the world, now over 3,000 people will have access to safe drinking water for life!" Katie is an extraordinary endurance athlete, a pioneer, and a woman who has made life better for thousands of people.
