The Walk For Life is a fun way to get involved and make a difference for LIFE!

When you participate as a Fundraising Walker you make a difference in the lives of those facing unplanned pregnancy! Participants are encouraged to ask friends and family to help them reach their fundraising goal. Churches, small groups, classes and businesses can participate as teams to make an even greater impact.

Being a Fundraising Walker is easy!

  • You can use a Walk Brochure (mailed to friends of the ministry & available at your church Sept. 10th to Oct. 8th)
  • OR create your own fundraising page here by clicking PARTICIPATE.

It’s simple! Ask your family and friends to support you by making a one-time pledge for whatever amount they would like.

All pledges are a one-time pledge, not a per-mile pledge. This is not an athletic event, choose your own pace for the 2-mile walk.

Whether you walk at the Fairgrounds, or participate in your own neighborhood, we ask that you join with us to raise funds for this life-affirming work.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Join us on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12th at the Sussex County Fairgrounds for our Annual Walk for Life! Let’s gather together to honor and celebrate life as we walk to raise awareness and funds for Today’s Choice Women’s Center and the work we do for women at risk for choosing abortion. When you participate as a fundraising walker or sponsor, you directly impact the families of our local communities and save lives of the unborn!

  • Parking is located in the same place as years past, in the grass on the roadside of the large fence.
  • Check-In is in a NEW location in the covered pavilion at 9:00am!
  • Walk begins at 10:00am

This years goal is to raise $65,000.00 for the work of the ministry!

Are you wanting to walk as an individual in this year’s Walk for Life? Participating as a fundraising walker is easy! We’re so excited to partner with you and thank you for supporting our mission of life. You are not only walking for yourself but for the mothers, fathers, and babies saved and supported every year at Today’s Choice. We look forward to walking with you on Oct. 12th!

Participants gather sponsors to help them reach their personal fundraising goal. Churches, small groups, families, businesses, and classes are encouraged to participate as teams to make an even greater impact.

You can use a Walk Brochure (mailed to friends of the ministry & available at your church Sept. 15th to Oct. 6th), OR create a Fundraising Page here by clicking PARTICIPATE.

Simply ask your family, friends, and coworkers to support you by making a one-time pledge of whatever amount they would like.

All pledges are one-time, not per mile. All pledges are tax deductible. This is not an athletic event, so choose your own pace for the 2-mile walk.

Check the RESOURCES tab for tips on how to get started fundraising. Thank you for your support and for making a difference, one life at a time!

Do you have a group of friends, family, or ministry who want to participate in the Walk for Life? It’s better to experience an event like this together! A team consists of three to ten fundraising walkers. Each team member will still need to fundraise individually and have their own pledge form (paper or online) on event day.

Be sure to designate one person as the Team Captain. As a team captain, just follow the easy steps below to create a team.

  1. Register yourself
  2. Pick a team
  3. Encourage each of your team to register for the event online
  4. Visit the FAQs section if you or your team have questions
  5. Set a team goal and encourage your team! Check in about how their fundraising is going.
  6. Walk together on October 12th!

There are two Team Categories: 

Youth Teams can be made up of youth groups or school class. The members of a youth team must be under the age of 18 with the exception of two walkers who may be youth leaders or teachers.

Traditional Teams may include members of any age.

How do I fundraise online? 

Create a personal fundraising page, then share it on your social media and email – just use the links on your fundraising page. Watch this video to learn how!

What should my fundraising goal be?
It will be easier than you might think! See the “How to Raise $500 in 10 Days” in the RESOURCES dropdown.

How will my sponsor donations be used?
All funds raised through the Walk for Life will benefit the life-affirming work of Today’s Choice Women’s Center. Direct donors to our friend/supporter website, your fundraising page, or your walk brochure to learn more.

Who should I ask to sponsor me?
You probably know more people than you think! Don’t forget to ask family and friends who live out of town! Using your social media can also be a powerful tool – take a peek at our RESOURCES tab for ready-to-go social posts and easy-to-share videos! If you prefer paper, use your Walk brochure and talk to friends at church, work, etc. Obtain your first pledge from a generous donor, often other donors will match that amount.

How much does it cost to participate in the walk?
There is no cost/fee for the Walk for Life. However since our goal is to raise $60,000.00 to support our mission, we encourage people to participate by raising funds or sponsoring themselves.
