About:

Bethany Covenant Church invites the community to join them in the Global 6K for Water and Family Fun Day Saturday, May 16th, to provide clean, safe water to families in developing countries.

Clean, safe water is something we take for granted, but women and children in the developing world walk an average distance of 6K (nearly 4 miles) daily to access water to meet their families' daily needs. Often the water they find is unclean and unsafe for human consumption.

The Bethany Covenant Church family has joined efforts to bring safe water to these families. Fifty dollars will provide water for one person for life in the developing world. So each adult registering for the 6K can provide a lifetime of water to someone in need.

The run will begin and end at Bethany Covenant Church, 5120 Ridgebury Blvd.

Family Fun Day, which is free and open to all, includes a picnic lunch and lawn games. Local Boy Scouts will provide a rock wall, rope bridge, bottle rockets, and other activities.

Registered runners/walkers (bicyclists, wheelchair riders, etc.) will receive a free t-shirt, race bib, and participation medal.

All registration fees will go to World Vision to fund their clean water projects in Congo and elsewhere in the world.

Bethany Covenant Church is an Evangelical Covenant Church, a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Rev. Debbie Montzingo is the pastor.
