Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2023 World Water Classic - by walking, running, biking, or supporting those who did! Together you raised $42,500 to provide access to clean, reliable water. Thanks to you, Water For People will continue its work to provide water and sanitation and end the walk for water that millions of women and girls do every day.
Plan now to join us in 2024 for the 5th Annual World Water Classic. The Classic will take place virtually October 4 - 13, 2024. Registration will open in the spring.
Your participation in the Classic helps make Water For People's mission of Everyone Forever a reality - a world where every person has access to reliable, clean water and improved sanitation systems that last forever and ends walking for water.
In many parts of the world, people are still spending hours every single day walking for water. That’s why we created the World Water Classic – a way for you to join us from anywhere to help change this reality.
But this isn’t just a typical 5k. It’s 6 kilometers because that’s the average distance women and girls in Sub-Saharan Africa walk each day to collect water for their families.
Here’s where you come in. Join other supporters like you to run, walk, pedal, or get creative in support of reliable, nearby water access. Choose your own route and join from anywhere in the world between October 4-13, 2024. Registration will open in Spring 2024.
