Global 6K Walk for Water

How to take part

Follow these quick and easy steps so you and your team can get geared up to take on your G6K challenge.

Get family and friends involved 

World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every​ 10 seconds and reaches three more schools every day with clean water. 


  • Walk or run 6 kilometres in a day or set yourself a personal challenge of walking 6 kilometres every day for a week in July.

  • Six kilometres (or 3.7 miles) is the average distance a person - mostly girls - in developing countries must walk to find water that is often unsafe to drink. By participating in this event, you are walking/running that distance so they won’t have to. 

  • Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhoea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes. That’s why we’re focused on providing clean water and sanitation to every man, woman, and child in every community we work in, including the most vulnerable populations in the hardest-to-reach places.

  • World Vision is the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the world and our water projects run in harmony with our other key areas of development: health, education, food, and economic development. This approach to clean water tackles the root causes of poverty, enabling children to experience fullness of life.

    Your donations will help us bring clean water to children and their communities living in some of the toughest places on earth. You will help to bring a future full of hope to children around the world. And here is a taste of how your donations help, bringing water to where it is needed most.

  • You can pay in your fundraising by setting up a JustGiving fundraising page, or by calling our Supporter Care Team on 01908 841010.

  • Yes! Your team leader will need to send email to with the name of all team members (specifying who is the team captain). 

  • If you're a beginner at walking or running we encourage you to use the NHS fitness apps to get you ready for your 6K. Join our Facebook community for more resources. 

  • You will receive your Global 6k t-shirt when you make your first donation via your JustGiving page or by phoning our Supporter Care Team. Once you raise £150 we will send you your World Vision goodie. 

  • Everyone who registers to take part will be emailed a digital copy of their G6k fundraising guide. You also have access to a sponsorship form, fundraising tips and tricks and a poster you can print out.
