Départ de la Course 2018
Once again a race in the Bois de Boulogne, again for a good cause: to mobilize populations to address the issues related to the accessibility of drinkable water in the world.
Launched in 2014 by the World Vision network (the world’s leading NGO sponsoring children), the Global 6K for Water is being held for the second time in France, with a great success in 2018!
This solidarity-based course, open to all, brought together 48,000 participants last year in the world and ensured access to drinking water for 35,000 people.
Founded in 1950, World Vision supports 120 million children each year (with local NGOs and partners) in 4 areas: access to drinking water, food, health and education. Its aim is to make the communities autonomous. As such, the association favours the transfer of skills and the participation of local populations in all projects.
Why 6 km?
Every day, thousands of children in developing countries travel about 6 kilometres to fetch water because they lack access to this precious resource in their homes.
On May 5, 2019, be part of the global movement and cover these 6 km so they no longer have to. 🙂
And why not combine this competition with a sightseeing tour of the city during your stay in Paris by running with real Parisian runner guides (warming up a day before the competition or recovering a day after)? Enjoy an original private tour, tailor-made for you:
