Global 6K


Each year, Beacon is one of the host sites for the world’s largest 6K as we walk or run for an extraordinary cause – bringing clean water to children and their families. Every $50 registration provides clean water for one person. You can help a child fulfill their dreams, instead of filling up buckets of water.

Why Walk for Clean Water?

Clean water frees children from deadly diseases, liberates women and children from a life spent gathering dirty water and opens the door to education, a promising future, and a full life. We believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes. That’s why we’re focused on providing clean water and sanitation to every man, woman, and child in every community we work in, including the most vulnerable populations in the hardest-to-reach places.  By registering for the Global 6K for Water, you are helping build a world where everyone has access to clean water!

Why 6 Kilometers?

Aren’t most races 5k or 10k? The distance is significant. 6 kilometers 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, and the water is dirty. On May 19, every step you take is one they won’t have to.


Check back in the spring of 2019 to sign up for the next Global 6k!
