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, September 21, 2019, walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause.


 

Your registration fee — $20 for youths under 18 years old; $30 for adults over 18 — contributes to providing life-changing clean water to one person in communities where World Vision works.

With your registration fee, you will receive a 6K t-shirt, a finisher's medal, and a bib with a picture of a child who will receive clean water through World Vision.
