Walk for Life 2018

Ready. Set. GLOW!  

Join us as we LET OUR LIGHT SHINE at the 23rd Annual Walk for Life! This year’s event will take place Saturday, September 22nd from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Shuford Stadium on the campus of Catawba College.

This special event brings people from all over Rowan County together in support of LIFE and the FREE services that the Pregnancy Support Center provides to our community.

Our Kids Fun Run is back this year!  See below for the schedule of events!

 

HOW DO I REGISTER?

To participate in the Walk for Life, first create a fundraising page by clicking the link below.  You may request a paper pledge form by emailing erica@pregnancysupport.com.  Then ask everyone you know to sponsor you!  Pledges are tax-deductible.

This is not an athletic event, so you can choose your own pace for the 2-mile walk around the track at Shuford Stadium.

*Churches and Organizations are encouraged to designate a liaison.  This person serves as the primary contact for PSC for all Walk for Life communications.  They also help put together the walk teams and help reach fundraising goals!  Our 2018 Walk for Life Liaison meeting will be held on Monday, August 13th at noon at PSC.  To RSVP for the meeting email erica@pregnancysupport.com.  Light lunch will be served!  Click HERE for liaison information!
