World Vision's 2019 Global 6K for Water unites thousands of people around the world to provide more children with life-changing clean water. You don't have to run, you could just walk 6K - the distance that a child has to walk each day.
Bromham Baptist Church will be doing Global 6K on Saturday 4th May 2019, meeting at church at 10am for a 10:30am start. There will be activities for the children to do along the way. At the end of the walk, we will be having a 'bring your own' picnic lunch back at church. We invite you to join us in this great community event and raise money for a very worthy cause!
To register you will need to visit www.worldvision.org.uk/get-involved/register-interest/ and enter ‘Bromham Baptist Church’ as the Supporter ID and Team Name. You will then also be able to order free T-Shirts to wear on the day!

Grace and Judiths' Story- Uganda.
At daybreak, Grace's tiny 5 year old feet swiftly carry her along the narrow dirt path. She softly hums her ABC's, as butterflies flutter before her and crickets chirp in the dry grasses she brushes past. As the Ugandan sun begins its day's journey across the bright blue sky, Grace begins her journey for water. Grace's little sister, Judith, who is a month shy of her third birthday, scampers behind, struggling to keep up as they make their way through the high grasses that stand far taller than both girls.
But unlike so many people who begin their day with morning exercise, this 1.75 mile walk in Uganda, isn't for fun or to take in the beauty of a peaceful morning. It's out of necessity - Grace and Judith are making the day's first trek to get water for the family.
With the nearest borehole about 6 kilometres (3.7 miles) away, the journey for clean water is more than 7 miles round trip. So the family
instead settles for contaminated swamp water that's half that distance - about 2.8 kilometres (1.75 miles) - away.
Grace and Judith must make their daily trek so the family can survive, and struggling for survival is what this community is accustomed to.
With your help we can provide Grace, Judith and more children like them with life-changing clean water by taking part in the Global 6K.
Every step you take is one they won't.
