Event description
Global 6K Walk for Water - Sydney 2019

About this Event

Six kilometres is the average distance people in developing countries walk to access water. On Sunday the 5th of May, Sydney is walking 6kms so many children, particularly young girls won’t have to.

Join thousands in a global movement, the Global 6K Walk for Water, so that more children can access clean water, go to school and have hope for the future!

Details of the day:

Registration from 1pm

Event start: 1.30pm

Event conclusion: 4.30pm

For the route see: https://goo.gl/maps/2554ihDxYny

This walk is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

As an extra challenge, bring a container to fill with water at half way mark at Blackman Park to experience what the journey is really like for children like Cheru.

How?

1. Register for the walk for free via Eventbrite

2. Fundraise online via the Global 6K for Water Everydayhero webpage.

Proudly brought to you by World Vision Australia in conjunction with Lane Cove Council and Lane Cove Community Chaplaincy.

Cheru's Story

Every day, over 800 children die from dirty water, due to diarrhoea caused by scarce or unreliable water and sanitation facilities in many communities around the world.

Cheru (below) is only 5 years old. Cheru wasn’t going to school because she had to walk 6kms every day to collect water for her family. The journey and the water were unsafe, causing Cheru to often become sick from consuming it.

The good news is that due to people walking the Global 6K Walk for Water last year, World Vision was able to bring fresh water to Cheru and her family! Now clean water is only steps from her home and Cheru can go to school! She no longer gets sick from dirty water and is receiving an education giving her hope for a future out of poverty!
