On May 4th, 2019 World Vision’s Global 6K for Water will unite people around the world to walk/run on the same day for the same cause. That cause is water – why water and why 6k? •6K (3.72 mi) is the average distance people in the developing world have to walk for water.
•The lack of clean water is the #1 preventable cause of death in the world.
•About 1,000 children under the age of 5 die everyday from unsafe drinking water.
But we can help to change that, right here in Traverse City! When you register for the Global 6K for Water, your registration fee will provide lasting clean water to one child in the developing world. Not only that, but you will also receive a photo of the exact child you are helping on your race bib.
Those of you who are not in Northern Michigan, I encourage you to either find a host site near you or consider donating to the cause at:
