Your church is called to do great things for the kingdom, both locally and globally! When your church hosts the Global 6K for Water, you open the door for friends, family, and anyone in your community outside your church to see the transformation Jesus offers by providing clean water to children in need.
The Global 6K for Water is a worldwide run, walk, or roll event that provides access to life-changing clean water to those in need. Host sites like your church bring people together for this transformational experience, whether in-person or virtually.
Why 6K? 6K is the average distance women and children walk for water in the developing world – water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. When your church and community comes together, each person who walks or runs the 6K helps provide clean water for one person in need, helping keep families safe from diseases like COVID-19.
Pick a leader – Choose a 6K point person at your church then sign up to lead your team! After registering, they’ll work with the World Vision team to launch and plan your church’s 6K.
Plan and launch – We’re here to support you 100%! There's an online leader's hub with tons of info, resources and examples of how to spread the word. As always, our awesome team will coach you through every step of the way.
Walk/Run 6K – On May 22, gather your church and community to walk or run 6K in-person or virtually. You’ll join thousands of others worldwide making a huge impact by bringing clean water to thousands in need.
Celebrate – Invite those who walked or ran to an online group video or chat to celebrate the impact together!
You and your team can still make an impact by donating online. It's never too late!
The Global 6K extends your church's spiritual presence beyond church walls and makes your community an extension of your church.
The entire family can participate and it's a great teaching tool for parents. We've had participants ranging in ages from 1 to 89!
The Global 6K rallies the larger church body of believers on the same day around a unified goal to create global impact.
What churches are saying
I LOVED having a part in reaching the world with clean water through the Global 6K! Hope to be a part next year too! Thanks! — Roxie [Helena, MT]
Despite everything you can imagine going wrong, it did including cold and rain on day of race and our picnic lunch after. Yet Praise God he still heard our Prayers! He met us in the rain. He was with us! People still came! Children and all it was an amazing day!! — Melody [East Hampton, CT]
This was my third year for both the 6k and Half LA Marathon. You are never too old as I will be 66 in a month. This year my 12 year old granddaughter did the 6k in Illinois with a group from her church while I did mine in California. That was special. — Judith [Whitier, CA]
I had an amazing time and can't wait to continue this every year!! I love this and its for a great cause. — Leslie [Placerville, CA]
It was crazy to imagine walking that, and carrying water also every day, I ran without water and was really tired by the end of it. I felt very happy that I had changed some ones life by just walking once what they walk every day. — Anna [Bend, OR]
World Vision does an amazing job of making this event happen and the staff is so good at what they do! Kudos to all! — Megan [Sioux City, IA]
