Walk for Life 2013 Report

Walk for Life 2013

We are so grateful for everyone who participated in our Mother’s Day Walk for Life!! Committee members, walkers, donors, those who helped the day of the Walk, the church that provided the bouncy house, businesses that sponsored t-shirts or donated cookies, coffee, and roses ~ all blessed us in a powerful way!! Our goal was 100 pledged walkers with $17,000 in pledges. While we only had 49 pledged walkers, we are happy to announce that we exceeded our $17,000 goal because our 49 wonderful participants raised $17,437.05 in pledges!! What a great testimony of the love and dedication of everyone involved!

For those who helped make this year’s Walk successful, thank you so much!! As an extension of the local church body and an invaluable service in the community, Bella depends upon the help and support of individuals, churches, businesses, and the Northern Hills community for financial sustainability. Your help and support enables us to carry out our mission of “empowering women in unplanned pregnancies to make informed choices.” We are thrilled with the result of your help and sponsorship of this event!

On behalf of each and every woman, man, and child that will benefit, thanks again for your faithful support!!
