World Vision Global 6K for Water

Walk, run, or push a stroller with us at the World Vision Global 6K for Water.  Why 6K?  It’s the average distance people in the developing world walk for water every day.   How far is 6 kilometers in miles?  6 kilometers is approximately 3.7 miles. It’s equivalent to 15 laps around a track. Imagine a small child making this walk every day with up to 40 pounds of water (the equivalent of a large microwave) on their back.  Every step you take is one they won’t have to.  When you and thousands of others cross the finish line, you’ll be changing the lives of women and children by helping to free them from a life spent collecting dirty water.

Registration is $50, which provides clean water for one person so they can wash their hands to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When you register, World Vision will send you a 6K t-shirt, race bib with a photo of the child you are walking and running for, and you will receive a metal after completing the 6K. Register early to get your 6K materials in time for the May 21st 6K day! No matter where or how you move your feet—in your house, at a park, or through your neighborhood, you’ll change lives by bringing clean water to those who need it most to fight the spread of COVID-19!
