6 kilometers is the average distance that women in East Africa walk each day to collect water. COME UNITY is committed to changing that fact. We are going the distance so they won’t have to anymore.

SPECTATORS: Come cheer on your favorite racer, peruse the vendor market and enjoy all the kid friendly activities. Purchase tickets (for a nominal donation) that permit you to enjoy the fun.
