Engineers Without Borders needs help, hosts virtual fundraising event

The goal of Engineers Without Borders is to help build better communities through engineering projects that empower, but they need your help! Ryan Docter, president of the UW-Madison chapter of Engineers Without Borders, joins FOX6 WakeUp to talk about their big virtual event. 

"Typically we host an in-person annual fundraising banquet, but due to the ongoing pandemic, we are hosting a virtual fundraising campaign, EWBeUnited. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to support our four projects, ranging from providing clean water to generating solar energy," said Ryan Docter, President of the EWB UW-Madison Chapter. "As a non-profit and student organization, we rely on the generosity from the local community to continue to advocate for communities in need abroad."
