“On May 6 join thousands of people around the world to change lives. It’s simple, you can walk, run, or even push a stroller in World Vision’s Global 6K for Water and provide clean water to one person! How- ever you cross the nish line, you’ll know you’ve made a difference to someone in need.”
We will be meeting at Lot D at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on May 6th at 7:30 AM - Starting the Run/Walk at 8:00 AM. This will be a great opportunity to get out with other members of Village Church as well as members of 3 other churches and come together as local missionaries!
If you would like to participate, but feel that you can't complete the Run/Walk we are looking for people to volunteer to help at water stations along the course to help keep our Runners/Walkers hydrated. We also need people to help hand out medals at the finish line and cheering all of the people on!

Why 6K? 6 kilometers is the average distance people in the developing world walk for water; water that is often unsafe to drink. Walk or run 6K so they don’t have to.
When: May 6, 2017
What: A collection of people all around the world, walking and running 6K on the same day for the same cause.
Why $50? Through World Vision’s water projects, $50 provides one person with clean water.
Individualized Impact Your $50 registration fee will provide clean water for one person that lasts through WV water projects.
Increased Impact Every 6K walker / runner = one person in the developing world who will get clean water. When more people register and more people fundraise, more people get clean water!
WORLD VISION WATER
Every child deserves clean water—and we are committed to delivering it.
Every day, nearly 1,000 children die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and unsafe hygiene practices—more than from AIDS and malaria combined.
World Vision is the largest nongovernmental provider of clean water in the developing world–reaching one new person with clean water every 30 seconds.
Our sustainable water programs are part of a bigger, integrated plan that gives local people ownership of solutions and addresses every piece in the complex puzzle of poverty.
Our water, sanitation, and hygiene efforts are part of a full plan that addresses the many factors that perpetuate poverty, all under-girded with a desire that people experience fullness of life as Jesus references in John 10:10.
You can continue the relationship with the child on your bib by becoming their sponsor! As a child sponsor your monthly commitment will help enable your child to enjoy good health, education and protection.
You’ll support families and community leaders in building a healthy environment for their kids to grow, thrive and reach their God-given potential.
When you sponsor your child you can write them their first letter and take a photo with your race bib to send to them as your first “official” photo together.
