World Vision Global 6K for Water

Saturday, May 4, 2019

Walk, run, or volunteer to help out at the 4th annual World Vision Global 6K for Water at Cascades in Jackson on Saturday May 4th. The child whose photo is on your race bib will get a lifetime of clean water because of your participation! 6K is the average distance that children and mothers must go multiple times a day to get dirty, contaminated water and then carry the 40 pound container back to their village. Disease resulting from the lack of clean water is the #1 PREVENTABLE cause of death in the world. Because of water related diseases, 1,000 children each day, or an average 20% of the children in Africa will die before their 5th birthday and in some remote villages 50% will die. You can be part of the solution and save lives. The 6K for Water will start and finish at its new location, the parking lot on the north side of the Cascade Falls, and go through the Cascades Falls Park & the surrounding neighborhood.
