Global 6K Walk for Water

Join the walk that brings life-saving water

 Join team World Vision and take on our Global 6K for water this August!

Whether you choose to walk, run, jog or even skate your way to 6K, you and many others will help make a difference in communities who do not have access to clean water, which is essential to vulnerable children and families.

Did you know? 6K is the average distance that children, often girls, walk every single day to fetch water for their community.

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. 


  • You can walk, run or choose whoever you like, to clock up 6k either in one day or challenge yourself to clock 6k everyday for the month of August as part of World Water Week.

  • 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.

  • Yes! Each member will need to sign up individually and send email to with the name of all team members (specifying who is the team captain) and t-shirt size.

  • 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 the 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.
