A vision for clean water, for as many people as possible. That’s the goal behind this year’s Global 6k For Water later this month.
Led by Team World Vision Ambassador Evan McBroom, the event kicks off May 19 at 8:30 a.m. at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church. Their goal is to involve as many Carmel and Indianapolis families as possible, with a goal to raise over $5,000 for global clean water initiatives.
The McBroom’s have a long history of leading the charge for global clean water access. Last year, the couple helped bring together over 25 Indianapolis Churches to raise over $650,000 for clean water by running the Indianapolis Marathon. That effort provided clean water to over 13,000 people in developing communities in Africa. The McBroom’s also have served in Ethiopia where they provided fresh drinking water to hundreds of families.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization that provides long-term solutions to poverty, emergency humanitarian assistance and advocates on behalf of the poor. World Vision is the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the developing world, providing a new person with clean water every 10 seconds. In 2016, World Vision provided access to clean water to 4.6 million people. For more information visit worldvision.org.
