One Cause. One Weekend. All Nations 6K for Water: May 6 Timber Creek Park
On Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Timber Creek Park, Kitchen 519 is sponsoring World Vision’s Global 6K for water.
In-person registration begins at 9:00 a.m. Six kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water — water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases.
World Vision is the largest nongovernmental (NGO) provider of clean water in the developing world, bringing a new person clean water every 10 seconds as part of their full solution to end poverty.
In 2015, World Vision provided access to clean water to 2.3 million people.
According to World Vision, in 1990, 76 percent of the world had access to improved drinking water.
“My family sponsored kids when I was growing up and I’ve donated to them.
Because she is a restaurant owner, Smarrito recognizes and appreciates all of the community support she has received.
This affords her the opportunity to make a greater impact, she said.
Day of 6K registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and walkers have up to 2:00 p.m. pm to complete 6K.
