Walk4Water11 + Global 6K

Global 6k Lake Oswego Oregon

Our Goal and Why We Come Together


Provide clean water, sanitation and hygiene to all Zambians having to walk 6 kilometers per day, carrying contaminated water.

How will this work?

  • Participants can choose to do our traditional (2.4K) walk, carrying water from Millennium Park to the drop stations at Foothill Park,
  • Or choose to do our new ‘distance’ 6K walk using the same traditional route with extensions in Foothill Park. These walkers will not carry water but ‘go the distance’.
  • Our walk date of April 21, 2018 is earlier as we were unable to coincide with the World Vision May 19, 2018 Global 6K date.
  • Location: event starts at Lake Oswego Foothills Park.
  • Registration fee is $50 per adult and $25 per child.
  • Directions to Park: Foothills Park, 199 Foothills Rd, Lake Oswego, OR 97034
  • All walkers should be ready to walk at 9:00am for opening ceremonies. All walkers should finish by 10:45am. Celebrations to follow.
  • Registration Kits will be sent to registrant’s address shortly after registering.  This will include a walker’s bib with a photo of a child yet to receive clean water. Registrant will be walking for such a child.
  • Parents registering children, simply add them as an additional participants when you register, using your email.
  • All fees go 100% to the WaterAfrica Zambia water projects.
  • Donations are always welcome on our website or directly to WaterAfrica, PO Box 2012, LO, 97035.
