Mrs. Ingra Green, Office Manager of Dallas World Vision US Programs, came to our church this morning to worship as well as to advertise the upcoming 6k.
She told us that the average distance to water in developing countries is 6 kilometers, which is walked often walked by children in order to get the necessary water for their day to day usage.
World Vision aims to raise money through it’s 6k to continue efforts worldwide to bring water closer to those in need. Participants would register for the 6k and each registration would cover the cost of providing one year of water for a person in need. This will be symbolized by a picture of a child on the race bib of every participant, who the participant is supporting through their walk.
You can walk the 6k so that those in need don’t have to.
