how it works

Each participant's registration of $50 goes to World Vision's water initiatives globally. After you register, you will receive a World Vision Global 6K for Water t-shirt, race bib, and medal. Map out a 6km route in your neighborhood or attend a bigger gathering at a host site. Walk or run with your friends and family on Saturday, May 19th, 2018, and post your photos on social media with the hashtag #6KforWater!



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 19th, 2018, people from around the globe will walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause.


From fast runners to leisurely walkers, thousands of people will unite around the globe on a mission to bring life-changing clean water to communities in need. World Vision works in over 100 countries and brings clean water to 1 new person every 10 seconds.
