6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water—water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 4, 2019, Covenant churches will walk or run 6k to bring life-changing clean water to our friends in D.R. Congo. Each participant's registration fee provides life-changing clean water for one person, so when you participate in the Global 6K for Water you take that 6K distance away from people in need.
Register as a Participant
When you participate in the Global 6K for Water, you provide clean water for one person. You will also receive a race bib, which includes a picture, name, and age of a child who benefits from water projects through Covenant Kids Congo powered by World Vision.
Every step you take is one they won’t have to. Sign up to walk or run the Global 6K today!

The Global 6K is a wonderful discipleship, outreach, and community-building event that has a profound impact. As a Covenant church, your efforts will benefit the Covenant Kids Congo program, blessing children and families in Gemena, DR Congo with the beautiful gift of clean water.
From fast runners to leisurely walkers, thousands of Covenanters will unite in prayer and solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Congo who walk daily for water that isn't safe to drink. Join the World Vision Global 6K with CKC and help expand clean water access in Gemena, DR Congo.
“If you’re looking for a way to bring your church together for fellowship, to bond over a cause dear to the heart of Christ, I challenge you: Do the Global 6k. Do Hope Sunday. Connect with Covenant Kids Congo.”

There was this joy and excitement of people coming out together, walking shoulder to shoulder, to raise money for clean water for Covenant Kids Congo. People were overjoyed with the opportunity to participate. It really brought our people together in a new way and got us out of our church to be in the community.”
