Walk for Life - Saturday, May 12th

Gowen Park, Sanford

Sponsors can donate or pledge online, or can give you the donation or pledge directly. We will bill all pledges following the day of the Walk.

Alpha's Annual Walk for Life is a family oriented fundraiser event to raise awareness of the sanctity of human life in our community, while raising funds needed to serve our clients and provide for their needs

The Walk is approximately 2.5 miles beginning at Gowen park, past scenic Number One Pond, and up Main Street in Sanford. Bring the whole family and join us for this fun event!

Free 25th anniversary commemorative walk t-shirts while supplies last.

If you would like to participate, but are unable to join us, you can simply collect pledges or online donations, walk on your own in your neighborhood, and mail in your pledge brochure!

Step 1: Register online or download the pledge brochure and fill out the registration information inside.

Step 2: Ask everyone you know to sponsor you! Ask in person, via email or social media! You may be amazed at how many say yes!

Step 3: Be sure all names and addresses are complete and easy to read. Bring this pledge brochure, and any donations given directly to you on the day of the Walk and we will handle the rest!

Thank you!

There is no cost to participate in the Walk for Life, although it is a fundraiser. All funds raised through this event make it possible for us to serve our clients completely free of charge.

We are celebrating Alpha’s 25th anniversary of impacting our community for life! During that time, there have been over 11,000 client visits. Behind each of those 11,000 visits is a client- a person who turned to Alpha for help, someone who needed us to speak life into their situation. There is a story behind each of those 11,000 visits, and it is a two-part story: the client’s story and the story of what God is doing in and through the life of that client. The faces of our clients include the girl that is scared that she is pregnant, and relieved by her negative pregnancy test results. The couple that has already determined that she is pregnant and have made an appointment for an abortion, but come to Alpha for information first. The struggling single mother that says she doesn’t know where else to turn for help. The woman gripped by a past abortion, that can barely verbalize the word, much less consider working through the hurt. Each opportunity to serve a client is an opportunity to lovingly speak truth and life into their situation, to both educate and encourage them. As God works through each of these opportunities, we often see fruit of what He is accomplishing through Alpha’s ministry. The scared girl that is now equipped with truth to make healthier choices, the abortion appointments canceled or never made, the struggles that have turned into triumphs, and hurt transformed into healing.

Nearly seventy percent of those 11,000 visits have been in the last seven years, and as our impact for life increases so do our expenses. As we not only celebrate God equipping, providing, and allowing Alpha to serve our community for the last 25 years, we also celebrate the collaborative effort of all of us coming together, out of love for our community, to pray for, to volunteer, to serve, and to give. In celebration of Alpha’s 25th anniversary, our goal is to raise $25,000 with our Walk for Life! If 100 participants raise a minimum of $250, then we will reach our goal!
