Each year, World Vision hosts its Global 6K for Water, where families, neighbors, friends, and churches come together to walk or run a 6K — the average distance women and children in developing nations walk to get drinking water.
Often this walk can be dangerous and the water can be unsafe to drink for the citizens of the developing nations.
During Saturday’s opening of the event Adam deWeber, Pastor of Evangelical Community Church sang the National Anthem and led the group in prayer prior to the start of the 6K.
Ashley Inselman, who is the only paid employee of World Vision in Indiana, made opening remarks at Saturday’s event.
The weather was perfect for the event before temperatures started to climb Saturday afternoon.
