Thanks for joining us this Saturday, May 19, as we walk, run, and stroller for clean water in the Congo! You are part of a global movement - there are over 35,000 people participating in the Global 6K, which means more than 35,000 people are gaining access to life-changing clean water. Praise God!
Here are some important details about the Global 6K at Crossview:
Race shirt, bib & medals: UPS has been out on May 18 delivering race kits, with t-shirts, bibs & finisher medals for everyone who was still waiting for theirs! Remember, if you've got a medal in your race kit, bring that to the Global 6K on Saturday! **We will have a limited number of extra shirts if you need to swap yours for a different size.**
Parking: We will have parking onsite at Crossview if you arrive before 9:15am. After 9:15am, please park in the Dakota Meadows east and west lots.

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, thousands of participants from around the globe will walk or run 6k to bring life-changing clean water to communities in need. 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.
