Water-to-Go Teams Up With Jordan Wylie

We are delighted to announce that former soldier, best selling author and extreme adventurer Jordan Wylie has joined us as an ambassador for 2019. It is a privilege to working with someone of Jordan’s calibre and influence so we are excited for what the future holds. Described by Sir Ranulph Fiennes as “a determined, fearless adventurer and an inspiring man”, it is clear that he has had a life packed full of travel, adventure and personal challenges to get him to the top of his game.

Jordan recently returned from an expedition called ‘Running Dangerously’ which saw him run through 3 of the most dangerous countries in the world for charity using a Water-to-Go bottle throughout his adventure. It was an amazing achievement and now he has a new challenge in store.

It is clear that Water-to-Go has been an important part of his expeditions and is essential kit for wherever he goes. No matter where he is in the world, Jordan has the security in knowing that our unique filter will eliminate any harmful contaminants providing him with safe, clean drinking water.

 

Water-to-Go has developed a filtration system that eliminates over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses, bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals from any non-salt water source. As an extreme adventurer, I often find myself in environments that are remote and complex and I rely on nature as my main source of rehydration.

Jordan now uses his extensive network of contacts and wealth of experience to help educate, inspire and motivate others worldwide. Jordan is a regular in the worlds media having featured on HBO America, Discovery Channel, Vice, BBC, Sky News, in the Wall Street Journal and The Times newspaper. Jordan is also one of the stars of Channel 4’s Hunted and Celebrity Hunted which will be back on our screens in early 2019.

It is a very exciting time for Jordan so we are pleased to be working with him and supporting him on his journey. Furthermore, it is great to see that we have similar values and missions in protecting the planet and becoming more sustainable.

The Water-to-Go filtration bottle is a must have for any adventurer or traveller that often finds themselves exploring off the beaten track. I am delighted to be working with Water-to-Go and to be able to drink water where you are certain of the quality by filtering it yourself, help reduce plastic waste and have a better impact on the environment is fundamental to long term sustainability on this planet.

It is fantastic to hear that Jordan has been using Water-to-Go to keep him safe and hydrated on his adventures over the years and is now joining us on our journey.

Jordan is very good friends with another Water-to-Go ambassador, Ash Dykes, and it seems like they both have something in common – they both like pushing themselves to the limit and attempting world-first expeditions!

Jordan’s next challenge will see him undertake a world-first that will test him to the limit once again. He is now preparing to become the first person to row the world’s most dangerous strait of water, completely solo and unsupported, in an expedition titled, ‘Rowing Dangerously’. See what this incredible expedition entails in the video below.

 

Jordan who raised over £100,000 for charitable and good causes in 2018 will be heading towards more danger next year when he heads to the Gulf of Aden in world first rowing attempt to cross the Bab-El-Mandeb Straits. Jordan hopes to raise £250,000 to build a new school in Djibouti for Somali and Yemen child refuges so they can continue education. To learn more about Jordan or his charity adventures, visit www.jordanwylie.org

£250,000 raised for Macmillan Cancer Support

Sam Greatrex has successfully raised £250,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support broken THREE world records and travelled over 10,000 miles (all with his Water-to-Go bottles).

29 year old cancer survivor, Sam, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma when he was just 10 years old. The help and support he received from Macmillan prompted him to embark on his incredible journey.

The trip began with a 2,700 mile cycle from Paris to Lagos in Portugal. After a quick Christmas break and some much needed weight gain, he rowed 3,800 nautical miles with a team of four other adventurers from Lagos to Venezuela in just 51 days (a new world record)!

Sam then hit the road again once more on his bike and proceeded to cycle a further 4,000 miles to Peru where he was informed that he had smashed his previous target of £240,000 and raised a staggering £250,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Sam was kind enough to send us this email:

“Hope all’s well at Water-to-Go. Just to let you know that I arrived at the South Pacific coast at the town of Paracas, Peru, last week to complete the challenge, and just a few days earlier received the news that the expedition had raised £250,000 for Macmillan.

Thank you for all your support along with the motivational words to keep me going over the last few years.

The Thames river, the Amazon, and the deserts of Peru were no problem for the Water-to-Go bottles. They were an essential piece of kit from the very start of my journey in Birmingham to cycle through Europe and South America. The reliability of the filters and practicality to fill the bottles at almost any water source meant that there was one less thing to worry about during the physically exhausting times of the journey.”

Congratulations to Sam. We are all very proud here at Water-to-Go HQ.
