WHY WATERBOYS

“I realized the platform I had as an NFL player to affect change is something you need to take advantage of.”

“I thought about the best way that I could change the world, and I think the easiest and effective way to do that is clean water.”

“For me, it’s like ‘I have this window to do something, and if I don’t, then I kind of wasted my opportunity.”

“Clean water is a basic human right that everyone deserves.”

“I think that our collaborative effort with this initiative is one-of-a-kind in pro sports in that it’s player-driven, there are no decision-makers outside of the players, and I and my peers are driving this thing.”

-Chris Long

Our unique approach to fundraising unites players and fans behind a shared cause. As official Waterboys, players team up to raise awareness and encourage donations that supply communities in need with clean, accessible drinking water.
