A Bad Ride for a World of Good

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring sustainable clean drinking water to children & families in rural Africa.

Our Vehicle

Our hi-performance 4x For truck was built and sponsored by the Off-Road / Overlanding community in an effort to raise $1 million and support clean water projects through VOX.

Our Xpedition

Our trek across sub-Saharan Africa will generate clean water awareness and deeply honor my late father, and fellow car guy, Hersch.

My Dad Loved Cars

My dad loved the look and feel of a detailed finish.
He loved cruising the strip to Elvis and The Beach Boys.
He loved the confident rumble of 400 horses.
But most of all, he loved people.

Maybe that’s why he and my grandfather spent hours by my side working on cars. While I cherished my ‘69 Ford Fairlane, rebuilding it was really just an excuse to come together.

What if we could use that same excuse to do a world of good?

Named after my late father, Herschel King, the Hersch X build was (and is) fueled by a passion for cars and a way for us to “come together” and do something special for those in need.

The Need

Every day thousands of children needlessly die from water-born diseases and a lack of clean drinking water.

Together we can do something about it.

$35 gives a child clean drinking water

$10K installs a community well.

The 4xFor Challenge

My dad taught me that cars are cool, but people are what really matter.

To extend his legacy & make the world a better place for others, we’ve teamed up with the off-road community & industry to kickstart the 4xForChallenge.

The 4xFor Challenge is an effort to raise $1 million—for a cause that is close to my heart: clean drinking water for rural Africa. It’s in short supply.
