The 2018 Global 6K For Water

6 kilometres is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water—water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday 19 May 2018, thousands of participants from around the globe will walk or run 6k to bring life-changing clean water to communities in need. All the money raised goes towards our work including providing better access to water, sanitation and health to communities around the world, so when you participate in the Global 6K for Water you take that 6K distance away from people in need.

There are two ways you can get involved…
