Bow Simpson works for the Dharriwaa Elders Group. This charity has been fighting for the NSW town of Walgett to receive clean drinking water, as it hasn’t had clean, drinkable tap water for five years.

In this season of The Amazing Race, Dane and Bow Simpson are competing for the Dharriwaa Elders Group. If they win this competition, their charity will win $100,000. This money will then go towards supplying Walgett with clean drinking water.

“Dad spends a lot of time in Walgett, has a house there,” Dane said in a press statement. “He lives there half the time, and he lives in Wagga Wagga. We think everyone in Australia should have access to clean water to drink.”
