6k for COME UNITY
Saturday, June 13, 2020
Your Community! The beauty of this fundraiser is that anyone can participate, anywhere. No planning, no frills, just global impact.
6k is the average distance that women and children in Africa walk each day to collect water. We’re going the distance so they don’t have to. On Saturday June 13th, join individuals across the world and walk 6k to raise funds for COME UNITY’s basic needs initiatives in East Africa.
Since 2007, we have been committed to bringing clean water to our East African partner communities. As COVID-19 continues to impact our global community, we understand now more than ever the importance of having access to clean water.
In April, we received our first grant for $10,000 from the IMF to help complete a clean water project in Inkuseron, Kenya. We need just $10,000 more to fully fund this project and bring clean water to over 6,000 community members.
This year to respect social distancing recommendations, we are asking you to participate from wherever you are. We can’t wait to see how many different places we can represent on June 13th!
Here’s how it works:
- Register on Eventbrite. Your registration fee of $24 supports clean water for 3 community members in East Africa.
- Once you have registered, we are encouraging participants to create a Facebook fundraiser to raise additional funds to help us reach our overall goal of $10,000.
- If you register before before June 5th you will receive an information packet from our 6k team to help represent the 6k on June 13th – keep an eye out in the mail!
- On Saturday June 13th, run, walk, jog or dance your way for 6k (approximately 3.72 miles) and help impact lives in East Africa.
- Post a photo of you on race day, tag @comeunity_now or COME UNITY Facebook using the hashtag #6kforCOMEUNITY. You can also send photos or videos to our 6k team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post for you!
All participants who register AND post/share about the 6k will receive a surprise follow-up gift as a thank you for your support!
