After you register and get four more people to sign up for your host site, we’ll mail you your Global 6K launch kit! Your launch kit includes your official Host Site Leader Planning Guide and other promotional materials to help you get the word out about your Global 6K.


Use the tools from your launch kit to recruit participants for your host site. As your site grows and increases its impact through fundraising, you’ll receive credits to purchase flair from the store for your event day. Remember, every $50 donated equips one person with life-changing access to clean water.


On May 18, bring your community together to walk, run, or roll for children and families who don’t have access to clean water. Every step you take is one they won’t have to.

Global 6K Basics

What is the World Vision Global 6K for Water?
It’s an event where people from all around the world come together to walk, run, or roll a 6K on the same day, for the same cause: clean water.

When is it?
Saturday, May 18, 2024 Why 6K? 6 kilometers (3.73 miles) is the average distance people in developing countries walk every day for water that is often unsafe to use or drink. On May 18, every step you take is one they won’t have to!

Why $50?
Every $50 registration fee will equip one person in need with lasting access to clean water through World Vision projects. And thanks to generous donors, participants age 18 and under can register for $25.

Who is World Vision?
World Vision is the leading nongovernmental provider of clean water in the developing world. We reach one new person every 10 seconds and three more schools every day with clean water, and we’re committed to reaching everyone, everywhere we work by 2030.
