Global 6K 2020 is coming soon

Every step you take is one they won’t have to

Setting off

Thank you to everyone who took part in 2019’s Global 6K for Water. It was only the second time the UK’s taken part – and you amazing people raised £33,000 – helping vulnerable children in communities across the world to access clean, fresh water.

This year, we’re getting into our stride and on the way to making an even bigger difference – so join us for more events and opportunities.

World Vision is reaching someone new with clean water every 10 seconds.


Organise your own Global 6K

Organise your own 6K for family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, your school, church family, etc and help some of the world’s most vulnerable children to access water.

It’s simple to do – for groups of 10+ we’ll equip you with everything you need for a fun and meaningful event.

If you’d like to know more about setting up your own 6K event for 10 or more people, just call us on 01908 84 10 10.

What is the Global 6K?

This is an event everyone can take part in to help vulnerable children around the world access clean water. You can walk, run, wheel, skip or backflip (show off!) your way around your 6km course. Either join an organised event in your area (details to come in early 2020) or devise your own route.

Encourage friends and family to sponsor you – and your fundraising will bring clean water to children who need it.

And you’ll be joining people all over the world in a global movement. Last year 64,000 people from 30 different countries took part!

Why 6K?

Six kilometres (or 3.7 miles) is the average distance people – usually women and girls – walk to get water for their families in the developing world. Often, the walk is dangerous, children miss school, and the water is dirty meaning children get sick. ​
