BENEFITING: ALPHA PREGNANCY CENTER
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2013
The Alpha Pregnancy Center Walk for Life is a day for us to join together and help families that are facing the difficult situation of an unexpected pregnancy, or raising children as a result of those pregnancies. Like any fundraising walk, participants walk to raise funding and awareness of a cause they are passionate about. In this case it is making sure families have what they need to keep a surprise baby and raise it with abundant love. Unlike other fundraising walks, participants in the Walk for Life deliver care packages to the families supported through Alpha Pregnancy Center.
This is so much more than walking in a circle! It is an opportunity for your heart to connect with what women and men face when they raise a child born from a crisis pregnancy. It is an opportunity to follow God’s call to love justice and mercy, being compassionate to the fatherless and loving your neighbor as yourself.
The Walk for Life offers three major benefits to the participants and the community:
- 1. Our clients get an extra touch of God’s love and see even more clearly Christ’s character when receiving hand delivered gift bags.
- 2. The walkers become more directly involved in ministering to women and families that have been affected by a crisis pregnancy.
- 3. Alpha Pregnancy Center gains funds allowing us to extend our services to more people.
