District 123 is thinking globally by acting locally, hosting their first 6k for Water this weekend with the World Vision Organization. Six kilometers is the average distance people is less fortunate countries have to walk to get to a water source, often times not even clean water. More than 100 participants came out on October 1st to raise awareness and funds to help those who live in countries where clean drinking water is not easy to come by.
The World Vision Organization works to put on the 6k events partnering with schools and other organizations. Funds raised then go to build reservoirs to provide clean drinking water to the countries that need it most.
