Your Church + The Global 6K


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.

Join us online for a digital meet and greet to learn more on what you can expect to see in your church and community when you host the Global 6K for Water.






What is the Global 6K?



The Global 6K for Water is a worldwide run, walk or roll event that provides life changing clean water to those in need. Host sites like your church bring people together for this transformational experience.

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 that walks or runs the 6K provides clean water for one person in need.

Hear from Ashley

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!

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!!

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.

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!
