World Vision in the Philippines is extending the registration for the Global 6K Run to August 31, 2021. Global 6K Run is a virtual run that invites the public to unite for clean water in the country, especially in the most vulnerable communities.
World Vision, through the Global 6K Run, aims to make clean water more accessible by raising funds to build multiple water facilities in Laurel, Batangas, and other communities in need. These facilities will not only provide drinking water but also water for hygiene and sanitation purposes, especially since one effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is through proper handwashing and hygienic practices.
This virtual running event also aims to promote fitness and health during the pandemic while raising funds for the needs of World Vision’s most vulnerable children and communities.
Interested participants can now register for the Global 6K Run until August 31, 2021, by visiting https://wvph.co/g6kph. There are several run categories to choose from: 6K, 12K, 24K, or 60K, which can be tracked by any available fitness tracker app or indoor running equipment. Individuals who will submit proof of completion of the run will get an electronic certificate. They can also receive an event shirt if they purchased it as an add-on during registration. Participants will be given one month, from September 1 to 30, to complete their desired distance.
World Vision Celebrity Ambassador Enzo Pineda, a staunch supporter of the child-focused organization’s initiatives for health and wellness, invites the public to join the cause and unite for clean water for many vulnerable children and individuals.
“I’m supporting the Global 6K Run because I want to encourage our fellow Filipinos to give and help those who are in need. I also understand the value of clean water because it is essential to life. Giving the children and their community access to clean water will be a huge help during this pandemic where health is a priority,” Enzo Pineda shared. “I encourage everyone to join because their help will go a long way. It also feels amazing to be a blessing to others.”
Anyone can register to participate in this global advocacy event and contribute to World Vision’s goal of providing clean water in their assisted communities. Since it is a virtual run, the participants can walk or run whether indoors or outdoors and use running or steps app to monitor the distance, provided that they strictly adhere to prescribed community quarantine protocols in their area.
“We thank God for your support to the World Vision Global 6K Run. Through this initiative, we can help thousands of children across the Philippines to access clean water and facilities for sanitation and hygiene. And it’s a bonus that we can enjoy this activity while keeping ourselves fit, strong, and healthy during this challenging time,” said Mr. Rommel Fuerte, National Director of World Vision Development Foundation, Inc.
