The global water crisis affects millions of kids' and women's lives in the developing world. People without access to clean water have to walk an average of 6 kilometers (that's a little over 3.7 miles) every day to get dirty water for all their basic needs -- cooking, cleaning, drinking.


The Global 6K will start and end at the church, and weave throughout the neighborhoods surrounding Light of Christ, 1700 Longmeadow Parkway. Check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. with opening ceremonies at 10 a.m.

A pizza lunch will be served immediately after the event for all participants.All ages and skill levels are welcome. Cost is $50 or $25 for youth under age 18. Sign up via
