Berlin, Germany/Teller, Alaska/USA, 27th July 2011 – Kiting for a good cause: With his participation in the Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition Constantin Bisanz calls for donating for clean drinking water. He is an active supporter of the internationally operating charity organization Global H2O.
Global H2O is an initiative of „The Wilde Foundation“, an international non-profit organization aiming at building clean water and sanitary facilities for rural population worldwide. The lack of clean drinking water is one of the biggest health risks in developing countries.
“Water is my element – I couldn’t live my passion, kite boarding, without it. Because of this special relationship I am supporting globalH2O: They give clean drinking water to those who need it,” describes Constantin Bisanz his decision.
A donation of only 20 USD secures a lifelong supply of clean drinking water for a person, 150 UDS even for a whole family. Please donate here: http://www.globalh2o.org/projects/constantin-bisanz/
Pure adventure on the Bering Strait
During the latest attempt for the crossing a 70 km/h storm came up with five meter high waves. Constantin’s leash ripped, his board and Geza’s kite broke, they lost their GPS and all other communication tools. Luckily, they were rescued by their supporting team out of the only 2 degree cold water. Now they are waiting in their base camp for better conditions and the next attempt.
