World Vision Global 6K for Water

The Global 6K for Water is a collection of people from all over the world walking and running 6K on the same day for the same cause – clean water. 6K (3.73 mi) is the average distance that women and children in developing countries walk every day for water that is often unsafe to drink.

The Global 6K is great because you can do it anywhere! Walk or run the distance, by yourself or with your family, and be part of this global movement with local impact to change lives. Whether you join from the treadmill or your favorite trail, the neighborhood or the track … when you and thousands of others around the world walk, jog, or stroller-run your way to 6K, you’ll help people who need it most get life-changing clean water.

This pandemic has taught us all the importance of handwashing for protection against diseases like COVID-19. Every child deserves clean water to drink — and clean water for handwashing to help keep them healthy. World Vision reaches one new person with clean water every 10 seconds and one new person with handwashing promotion as well.

One effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is through proper sanitation and hygiene. Frequent handwashing, cough etiquette, and physical distancing are being promoted. Through this sector, proper hygiene will strengthened through handwashing messages as well as distribution of family sanitations kits. In community where people are expected to gather (schools, market, community centers, etc.), a hand washing facilities will be installed. Behavior change messages for WASH and hand washing will also be highlighted.

The beneficiaries will be the community within Laurel Batangas and North Cotabato. The handwashing facility will be located at STA. MARIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. It is 7.5 km away from the poblacion. Almost 5 km away from the nearest public elementary school and approximately 8 km from the District office.

This is a Virtual Race, you can join and run anywhere in the world. All you need is a GPS-tracking running app.
