THIS MAY, CHANGE A LIFE.
Did you know 6 kilomters (3.72 miles) is the distance that many people in developing countries walk for water each day? Not only that, the water they walk so far to collect is dirty and unsafe to drink. According to World Vision, the lack of clean water kills more children than AIDS and malaria combined. One thousand people die every day from the lack of clean water and it is the #1 preventable cause of death in the world. Thanks to the efforts of World Vision through the 6k Walk for Water, we have an amazing opportunity to do something about this!
Join us and advocates across the globe in our mission to bring clean water and fullness of life to children in the developing world.
Walk with us at the World Vision Global 6K for Water on May 19, 2018. Each registration of $50 provides lasting, clean water to a child in Africa. Also, because of incredible donors, children ages 18 and under can participate for only $25! On May 19, you will walk with that child's name and picture on your race bib. How cool is that?
To thank you for your donation and participation in the 6k, we invite you to stay for lunch after the walk, on us. We want you to know how much we appreciate you being a part of this with us! Each registration gets you a t-shirt, a race bib, a medal, and lunch on us! More importantly, it goes to providing access to lasting, clean water to a child in need.
All funds raised by participant registrations, as well as any other donations, are partially tax-deductible! If you're able to give in addition to that, know that every $50 we raise means another child will gain access to clean water! With access to clean water, children can use the time they once spent walking so far, to now go to school! Clean water also means they can grow food that is safer to eat.
This is the fourth year of this event, and we look to continue to raise awareness and funds towards this great effort. We have the opportunity to end the global water crisis in our lifetime, and EVERY child deserves the fullness of life that comes with receiving clean water.
Will you join us? Register by May 14 to guarantee your package arrives in time!
