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!

6K women







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.
