THIS SPRING, CHANGE A LIFE. Join us and advocates across the globe in our mission to bring clean water and fullness of life to children in communities around the world.
Walk, run, or push a stroller with us at the World Vision Global 6K for Water on May 13th, 2017. Each registration provides lasting clean water to a child and on race day, you walk/run with that child's picture on your race bib.
Why 6K? It’s the average distance people in the developing world walk every day to collect drinking water.
Why $50? It provides a LIFETIME of clean drinking water to one child in Africa through World Vision. Kids participate at half price.
Why water? Team World Vision focuses on clean water projects because it is foundational for all other humanitarian efforts. Once a community has a sustainable clean water source, World Vision is able to also provide medical needs, education opportunities, and economic developments.
- Sign up by clicking “Join Our Team” above. If you register before May 1, Team World Vision will send you your t-shirt and race bib in the mail. If you register after May 1, we will have a limited supply of generic bibs and finishers medals available day of.
-Because we are an official host site, they will send us your finisher’s medal to be handed out at the end of the race (yes, we did say FINISHER'S MEDAL). Don’t forget to wear your t-shirt and bib on raceday!
- On your race bib, there will be a picture of a child that you will be running for. Use this picture as your training motivation!
- On the registration page, you will have the option to increase your impact by setting a personal fundraising goal. You will be surprised how many people you know will want to support you AND provide a lifetime of clean drinking water to a child in Africa. This is completely optional!
- The global event happens on May 6 (Derby Day). We have moved the Frankfort race to May 13 to accomodate the rich Derby tradition. If you recieve emails from World Vision with the May 6 day, please know that we are participating a week later!
- Running with the Frankfort Stiders? We'll report all of our participants to the series coordinators.
