Looking for a once in a lifetime experience? How does water+coolers+helping children in Africa get clean water sound? Good?
6 kilometers (3.7 miles) is the average distance that children in Africa walk for water—water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, August 4, 2018, join us in walking or running (while pulling packs of water in coolers) 6k to support World Vision's mission to bring life-changing clean water to children in Africa. Your team's donation provides clean water for children in Africa, so when you participate in The 6k Water Cooler Race you take that 6K distance away from children in need.
Grab your friends and family, your water coolers, and join us in walking or running The 6K Water Cooler Race.

Go big or go home! We can't think of a better way to practice "Push Through" than run the Kansas City Marathon on October 20, 2018. Whether it's the half of 13.1 miles or the full of 26.2 miles, you definitely will be emotionally and physically tested to "Push Through." We are running with Team Heartland of World Vision to help provide clean water in Africa.
We've all had those life moments...When you are socially, emotionally, relationally, financially up against a wall. You are worn down. Not sure how you are going to get through it. We like to call these "Push Through" moments. Where you have to dig deep with everything you got and even though you don't "feel" like it, you have to keeping going, you've got to "Push Through." Run with us in the KC Marathon to strengthen your skills of grit, perseverance, and determination. Next time you need a little uphf, tell yourself to "push through." #pushthrough
Want to practice pushing through and also bring clean water to Africa? Join Team Heartland and run the KC Marathon with us!
Why are we running with Team World Vision? We believe in living a life beyond ourselves. World Vision is the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the world. Last year, World Vision reached over 4.6 million new people with clean water.
Midwest Anxiety and World Vision have a shared vision of wanting to give children the best opportunity to have the healthiest, happiest life possible. Water changes the lives of children. They have better health, nutrition, and can go to school instead of spending the day fetching water.
Every Saturday from 10am-12pm, come fetch your water. Pick up 15 Hyvee 16.9oz bottles of water for every $10 donation to World Vision. Pick up location: Pop Up at Different Locations each week. Stay updated on the Water Sale locations by following the Water Sale Facebook Event Page.
NEED WATER NOW? As the kids in Africa have to on average walk 3.5 miles per day to fetch water, we want to fetch your water! For every $10 donation to World Vision, we will deliver 15 Hyvee 16.9oz bottles of water to your doorstep within 24 hrs of your donation. As you are getting water for those lake trips, sports games, and everything else you are doing this Summer, give your money to the kids in Africa rather than some big box store. Seriously. We want to be your Water Boy this Summer ;)
**Disclaimer** Sorry. Delivery of water is limited to Johnson County, Kansas residents only. After you have made your donation, please email your delivery address to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you ;)
On April 27, 2018, Randy Floyd, owner of Midwest Anxiety committed to running the Kansas City Marathon. Inspired by his gritty, perserverant, determined clients and the opportunity to help provide clean water to children in Africa, he excitingly joined Team Heartland of World Vision.
We have set a huge goal to raise for World Vision in our first year, $10,000. Keeping with the idea of "Push Through," we thought it was only fitting we set a goal that was a moonshot. Reaching our goal will provide 200 lives lasting clean water! Please support the Midwest Anxiety team by donating any dollar amount to World Vision. Thank you ;)
Running the KC Marathon and help provide children in Africa clean water is thinking beyond ourselves. We can't and don't want to do this alone. We hope you will join us in person or on social media on this journey.
