GLOBAL 6K FOR WATER

GLOBAL 6K FOR WATER
Water is essential for all life on earth and therefore, is key to sustainable development. A very large proportion of those living in poverty lack access to clean water and basic sanitation.

But for 844 million people around the world clean water is out of reach. Global 6K for Water is an opportunity for you, your family, friends and community to help turn the tide for people who need it most. Unite with people around the world and run, walk or jog to raise funds that will help bring life-changing clean water to vulnerable children and communities.

6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water—water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On May 19th, thousands of participants from around the globe will walk or run 6k to bring clean water to communities in need.

World Vision works in nearly 100 countries and brings clean water to 1 person every 10 seconds.
Each participant’s registration fee provides life-changing clean water for one person. When you participate in the Global 6K for Water you take that 6K distance away and improve their life tremendously.

Joining Team World Vision is simple. Search for a race in your area, a virtual race anywhere you like, or hist your own event.
Bring your family, friends, church, and neighbors together to walk or run the 6K! You’ll be equipped with everything you need, from planning guides and t-shirts, to signage and event-day materials (like cowbells and face paint) for an enhanced experience.

You can also join other Team World Vision events and run longer distances like marathons, half marathons and triathlons.
