6K (3.72 mi) is the average distance people in the developing world have to walk for water.
The lack of clean water is the #1 preventable cause of death in the world.
About 1,000 children under the age of 5 die everyday from unsafe drinking water.

Location: Merritt College
But we can change that, right here with FCC and the Oakland community! When you register for the Global 6K for Water, your registration fee provides lasting clean water to one child in developing world.
We also need several volunteers to make the 6K and the post-race brunch as success! Show your support by helping out on-site at the race or at FCC for the post-race brunch.
