Team World Vision: Global 6K for Water
Saturday, May 19th, 2018, 8:00am
On Saturday May 19th we will be joining churches all around the world by participating in World Vision’s Global 6K for Water. On one day, over 50,000 people will be walking or running to bring life-changing clean water to children in the developing world and it’s going to be amazing.
About 1,000 children die every day from not having access to clean water - that’s more than AIDS and Malaria combined. On top of that, the average distance kids have to walk for water that slowly kills them is 6K, about 3.7 mi. It keeps them out of school and it makes them even more vulnerable to kidnapping and trafficking because most of the time, they walk alone.
This event changes all that! Every person who signs up for the Global 6K provides lasting clean water to a child in need and removes that barrier from their life, allowing them to pursue the fullness of life that God desires for them!
The Global 6K for Water will take place at Cottage Grove Middle School. Race start times are 8 am, 10 am, noon, & 2 pm.
