Global 6k for Water

Every step you take is one they won’t have to

Join tens of thousands of people around the world to walk or run in the 2021 edition of the Global 6K for Water, the world's largest family walk, run, and fundraiser for clean water!


COVID-19 Update: The safety and wellbeing of our participants, volunteers, and supporters is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the developments related to the pandemic and are committed to keeping all participants informed on the status of G6K events worldwide.

Global 6k

Why 6k?

Six kilometers is the average distance people — usually women and girls — walk to get water for their families in the developing world. Often, the walk is dangerous and the water is unsafe to drink. When you commit to walk or run in World Vision’s Global 6K, you’re coming alongside these children to make their world a safer, healthier place.

All donations collected through the Global 6K will benefit children and communities through our World Vision water projects!

Are you ready? Walk, run or even push a wheelchair or stroller - however you cross the finish line - you’ll help transform the lives of women and children like 8-year-old Ireen from Malawi, who starts and ends every day with a dangerous walk to fetch disease-ridden water.
