The 2022 Global 6k is in the books... and it was a wet one here in Valparaiso! But we did it, providing clean water to more than 100 kids! Thanks to all who participated!
Want to join us next year? On Saturday, May 20, 2023, we'll be doing it again (hopefully with less rain) to provide clean water for even more kids!
If you join the team now, with promo code 6k23, you'll get 50% off your registration... and help give our team a boost going into next year!

WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Saturday, 8:30 am:
The skies are clear now... but for how long? We'll see! We plan to start at 9:30 and hope to get 5 full laps in before any rain returns... if it does! :)
Saturday, 5:54 am:
The storm has started... but the forecast calls for it to be past us before 9:30! So we are still (tentatively) planning to walk & run this morning! Depending on when the rain stops, we might be slightly delayed, but we are still shooting for a 9:30 start time this morning!
Friday, 10:02 am:
Right now, depending on which forecast you look at, the rain MIGHT stop during the hour or so that it takes us to walk/run the 5 laps around Old Fairgrounds Park... or we might have thunderstorms!
If all we have is a light sprinkle, then we will go ahead and walk/run tomorrow morning.
If we have a downpour, or if there is ANY lightning or thunder, we will not... and you will be free to either walk/run on your own sometime (send a pic!)... OR... join us on Sunday at noon as we try it again. If we have to delay to Sunday, we will provide pizza in addition to the bananas, Oreos, and water we'll have Saturday morning.
No matter what, we are excited to partner with World Vision to provide clean water for kids who need it! THANK YOU!
Watch this space for updates!
DATE: Saturday, May 21, 2022
TIME: 9:30 am for group photo. Then the walk/run begins!
LOCATION: Old Fairgrounds Park in Valparaiso, Indiana... or wherever you are!
We will meet by the south / Evans St. entrance. Look for orange!
THIS SPRING, CHANGE A LIFE. Join thousands of people across the globe in our mission to bring life-changing 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. Each registration provides lasting clean water to a child, like the child on your race bib!
This is not a timed event. No prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd, etc... but you will receive a finisher's medal to remind you how a child's life has been changed forever because of you!
Five laps around the walking track = 3.75 miles = 6k. That's the average distance women and children walk to carry (unsafe, contaminated) water back to their homes every day. But we are changing that! So let's lace up our shoes and get ready to walk (or run) so they don't have to anymore!
