News and Sermons
On Saturday, May 19, 2018, people from around the globe will unite through the world’s biggest 6K for clean water, World Vision’s Global 6K for Water, and walk or run 6kilometers for an extraordinary cause. “Nearly, 1,000 children die every day because of a lack of clean water and sanitation. The Global 6K for Water is a one-day, worldwide event where thousands will unite to literally save lives through the gift of clean water,” said Ashley Colquitt, the Global 6K for Water Race Director.
Join us at Naperville Covenant Church as we walk/run our 6K in support of our friends through Covenant Kids Congo, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Register as a part of our “Naperville Covenant” team here!
WHAT: 6K walk/run for clean water – Walk, run, or even push a stroller—however you cross the finish line, you’ll help transform the lives of women and children in Democratic Republic of Congo
WHERE: Naperville Covenant Church (start @ 1150 Hobson Rd. Naperville); race route along Illinois Prairie Path
WHEN: Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 8:30am
WHY 6K? : The distance is significant. 6 kilometers (approximately 3.7 miles, or 15 laps around a track) is the average distance people —usually women and girls— walk to get water for their families and homes in the developing world. Often, the walk is dangerous, children miss school to fulfill this household need, and the water is dirty. When you participate in World Vision’s Global 6K, every step you take is one they won’t have to.
COST: $50 – Every registration fee will provide life-changing clean water to one person
