World Vision is the official charity of choice of the World Athletics Cross Country Bathurst 21 Global Challenge.
ABOUT WORLD VISION
World Vision is a Christian relief, development, and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
A life without clean, safe water is harsh particularly for the young children and women who walk up to six kilometres a day to fetch dirty water. When you run in support of World Vision’s water and sanitation programs every step you take is one, they don’t have to.
Clean, safe water is essential for life. But for almost 800 million people it’s out of reach. Globally, around one in 10 people lack access to a safe water source and up to two billion people living in the world’s toughest regions have no access to basic toilets. But you can help change that. How can you help? Join us! Use your run to contribute to collective global efforts to ensure access to water and sanitation for all by 2030*.
Did you know World Vision reaches one new person with clean water every 10 seconds because of the work we do across the globe? As you step forward on your journey, you will help reach the world’s most vulnerable children and their communities with the water and sanitation services they need to lead healthier more fulfilled lives.

HOW TO SUPPORT WORLD VISION
As part of your event registration, you automatically get your own fundraising page. A link to this will be emailed to you upon registration. After completing this two-minute registration process, your friends, family, and the community will then be able to donate to you directly to help you achieve your fundraising goal. Ensure you set out your target fundraising goal and spread the word across your socials to help you achieve it.
Setting up a fundraising team is also a great way to fundraise as a group and feel a sense of community as you run your challenge. Each team will get their own personalised fundraising page, which you can share with your team members, friends, family, and community so that you can track your progress! Check out our FAQ page for further information on setting up and managing teams.
