6k For Water
- The aim of the race is to raise funds to bring drinking water to 300 students at the St. Mary Kevin orphanage and school in Uganda.
- The We Are Water Foundation, in collaboration with World Vision, initiated a project to provide a water system at the school in 2017.
- We Are Water is actively involved in supporting the race that World Vision is driving on a global scale.
The largest race for water will take place for the first time in Spain on Saturday, the 19th May: the Global 6K For Water, where participants will run 6km (the average distance many children have to travel every day to get clean water).
Take part in the race from anywhere in Spain!
The initiative will take place in Madrid and Pamplona. In parallel, anyone wanting to join the race and this good cause can do so from anywhere in Spain through the free application Kinendu, available for Android and Apple. The Foundation will donate 1 € for every kilometre covered until reaching the goal of € 40,000, which will allow the construction of the facilities in the Saint Mary Kevin orphanage and school in Uganda.

Every step in this race will be one step less for a child to take to fetch water and more opportunities for a dignified life, for attending school and for leading a full life.
