Global 6K for Water
Why does the Global 6K matter during a pandemic?
Even when you can’t gather in groups, you can make a global impact. And now more than ever, clean water is essential to protect vulnerable children and families. It’d be hard to wash your hands if you didn’t have clean water, right? Yet that’s exactly what millions of people around the world face. This pandemic has taught us all the importance of handwashing for protection against diseases like COVID-19. Every child deserves clean water to drink—and clean water for handwashing to help keep them healthy.
What if I want to do this with others? Is this event family friendly?
This event is designed for anyone and everyone, of all ages. It’s also flexible: You can walk or run the distance, by yourself or with your family and friends, and be part of this global movement to change lives. Whether you join from the treadmill or your favorite trail, the neighborhood or the track, when you and thousands of others around the world walk, jog, or stroller-run your way to 6K, you’ll help vulnerable kids and families establish life-changing access to clean water.
Why do I have to pay $50 for the event? Where does that money go?
Every $50 registration fee will help one person in need get lasting access to clean water through World Vision projects. So when you sign up, know that you’ll be helping change the lives of women and children by freeing them from a life spent collecting dirty water. In fact, when you fundraise for your Global 6K, every $50 you raise brings clean water to another person, so your impact can keep going!
