What is the Global 6K for Water? On Saturday, May 4, 2019, thousands of people will join the world’s largest 6K walk for clean water and walk or run for an extraordinary cause – bringing clean water to children and their families. Every $50 registration provides clean water for one child. You can help a child fulfill their dreams, instead of filling up buckets of water. Last year, 48,000 people participated in the Global 6K to provide clean water to 63,000 people. To find out more, go to www.worldvision6K.org.

Why walk for clean water? Clean water frees children from deadly diseases, liberates women and children from a life spent gathering dirty water, and opens the door to education, a promising future, and a full life. Right now, nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene – more than AIDS and malaria combined. But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes. That’s why we’re focused on providing clean water and sanitation to every man, woman, and child in every community we work in, including the most vulnerable populations in the hardest-to-reach places. Every 10 seconds, World Vision provides clean water to one new person. By registering for the Global 6K for Water, you are helping build a world where everyone has access to clean water!

How do I sign up? Go to H2O for Life to register. Registration is $50, which provides clean water for one person.  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 even a medal in the mail.
