NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - Hip-hop pioneer Richard "Crazy Legs" Colon has made his mark in the music world as an original b-boy. After Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico, Colon turned his attention to the place he calls home. It started with a call to Red Bull, one of his sponsors.
Crazy Legs is going hand to hand and the work he is doing is an example of how individuals can make a positive impact during a time of crisis to make a difference.
With the help of Red Bull, Colon linked up with the organization Waves for Water to distribute 600 water-filtration systems to the west side of Puerto Rico, where aid has been slow to reach.
More than 10,000 have benefitted from his clean water efforts. And they're just getting started. They plan to address lighting and the youth.
His GoFundMe page, RSC for Life, is a nod to the Rock Steady Crew. The page has raised $75,000, blowing past the original goal.
