The Missouri River Voyage (MORV) is a canoe trip that will begin in June of 2018 at the headwaters of the Missouri River near Three Forks, Montana.

The Missouri River Voyage will cover 2,341 river miles. The goal is to raise $10.00 per mile for a total of $23,410. The voyage is self-funded by the on-the-water team of Gary and Linda De Kock from Grand Rapids, MI, so all sponsorship donations go directly to benefit Water For People. To support our voyage, visit the MORV Crowdrise page or contact the MWEA office.
