The Arkansas Valley Pregnancy Center Walk for Life fundraiser will be held at the La Junta Nazarene Church at 1111 West 10th Street on Saturday, April 29.

Every life matters. From pre-born to grandpas and grandmas, we provide support to each member of the family at the Arkansas Valley Pregnancy Center. That is why our Walk for Life fundraiser is very important to us, not only financially but socially.

All of the Walk for Life events will be held at the La Junta Nazarene Church at 1111 West 10th Street on Saturday, April 29. We will start off the day with our 5K race. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by the race at 9 a.m. For those interested in doing the one mile Walk for Life, registration will begin at 9:30 with the Walk beginning at 10:30. To add a little fun for the kids, we will have an obstacle course run at 11 a.m. After all the running and walking, hotdogs will be coming off the grill at 11:30. Other activities that day will be a basketball hoop shoot, face painting booth, free popcorn and, of course, bouncy houses.

We have a list of great prizes available for our 5k run that include a hunting bow, a bow rest, a bow sight, G5 broadheads, tickets to Overdrive Raceway in Colorado Springs and industrial speaker from Fastenal.

Our Children’s Letter Writing campaign is easy for kids to participate in. After they receive their packet from the Pregnancy Center or their church, they follow the enclosed directions, and return the letters to us either before or the day of the Walk. If they complete 12 letters, they have the opportunity to win some great prizes as well. They include tickets to Sky Sox, Steel Works Museum, Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, Santa’s Workshop and much more. They will also receive an AVPC Walk for Life T-Shirt.

Adults who participate in the Walk for Life by collecting $150 or more in pledges will also receive a T-Shirt, featuring our new logo.

The Walk for Life is fundraiser is vital to our existence and growth. It enables us to continue to offer more opportunities to our community, such as parenting and relationship classes, pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, STD testing and education, and infant and children’s clothing in our boutique. All the services we offer are free. We are always deeply thankful for the support we receive throughout the year. We hope to see you at the walk.
