Who is Katie Spotz?

In 2010, Katie Spotz set the world record as the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Katie wasn't just seeking to make history. She was also raising money for a cause she cares about—providing access to clean drinking water to everyone in the world. Along the way, Katie raised more than $150,000 for safe water projects in Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Kenya.

Katie visited water projects in Kenya and saw the results of the funds raised through her adventures. She challenged 10 schools to raise $100,000 for clean water. To celebrate, the students gathered and broke the world record for the most people carrying jugs of water on their heads.

Katie's story has been featured across international media, including the Discovery Channel, World News with Diane Sawyer, Anderson Cooper 360, NPR, and PBS News Hour, as well as in the New York Times and many other publications.

Katie now serves as an Officer in the United States Coast Guard, a unique branch in the military responsible for saving lives, protecting the environment, and defending America’s coastlines and waterways. Katie continues to be an advocate to make a positive difference in the lives of others. The need for clean water for all is her passion!
