GLOBAL 6K FOR WATER : Saturday, May 4, 2019
Did you know that 6 kilometers (approx. 3.72 miles) is the average distance people in the majority world have to walk for water? Clean water is rare in many communities in the developing world, and it is rare in the community of Gemena, a remote city in the DR Congo where our friends at Covenant Kids Congo operate. Right now, the vast majority of the population of Gemena does not have access to clean water. Covenant Kids Congo powered by World Vision is partnerin with the Covenant Church of Congo (CEUM) and local leaders to expand clean water access in Gemena. Through the Global 6K for Water, you are invited to be a part of this project! Your race registration of $50 provides clean water to one person in Congo for life!
Join us for the Global 6K for Water on Saturday, May 4th right here at Naperville Covenant Church and help us make a greater impact through the clean water projects in Gemena, DR Congo.
Here’s how you can get involved:
RUN/WALK: Join our team and register to walk or run the 6K on Saturday, May 4th at 8:30am right here at Naperville Covenant Church! Our race route will start in the church parking lot and take us on a loop out, down to the DuPage River Trail and then back to the church. 6 kilometers is approximately 3.72 miles. So grab a friend, strap on those running shoes, and REGISTER today! Registration deadline is April 29th.
VOLUNTEER: If you’d prefer to volunteer at the event instead of walking/running the course, we can definitely use your help to make sure the course is safe (and fun!) for everyone involved! Here are a few areas we are in need of volunteers… Setup/Cleanup, Sign-In Table, Crossing Guards, Course Attendants, Water Station Volunteers, Finish Line Helpers. Send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in helping.
DONATE: Of course, the main reason we do this is to help make a difference in the lives of our friends in the DR Congo by raising money for clean water projects. If you’d like to support us, you can click the “Support Us” button HERE. We’d also love to have some food items to provide for our participants and volunteers after the race. We are seeking dontions of these types of items… Bananas/Apples, Bagels/Muffins, Donuts, Granola Bars (no nuts), Fruit Snacks, Water, Gatorade/Sports Drinks, etc.
