Walking Any Time, Any Where to Help Women @ Spero
The Walk for Life is one of two major fundraisers for the ministry since the walk began in 1996 (24 years!). It raises new volunteers and increases community awareness.
It is always the 2nd Saturday of September – A Stroll to Save Souls.
With special focus on walker safety, Spero was LIVE in 2020 for its Walk for Life despite the unusual challenges of these times. Many others chose to participate in other ways. Some walked on their own, their own day, their own location (some out of state!). They asked for pledges in advance from their friends & neighbors through email and texts because they believe in the work that Spero does. They know that the Walk is about supporting a charity empowering women and wanting to use the time to raise awareness & funds. We are grateful!
As walkers ask friends, coworkers, family, and neighbors for a pledge, it opens opportunities to share about Spero services and God. Walkers do not collect any money and don’t even have to be at the walk that day! Walkers can walk anytime, anywhere, and send in their pledge sheet. Walkers can even do it all on-line.
Churches participate by showing a short DVD about Spero during the Sunday service and distributing Walk fliers in their bulletins. If you didn’t see us at your church, please introduce us personally to your pastor as we would love to partner with your congregation.
Without the support of churches and the Body of Christ, Spero missions would cease to exist. Thank you to all our sponsored walkers and underwriting businesses!
It’s easy! This family friendly walk takes place along the scenic trail to Kettlewell Pond behind Meijer. Everyone can enjoy either walking or running the 2 miles. Walk for Life is a great way to spend time with family and friends, get some exercise, and raise funds to help women choose life for their babies, all in one! Walkers gathering pledges totaling more than $200, receive a free commemorative T-shirt. Walkers should register no later than Sept. 1, so they have time to ask for pledges.
Walk REGISTRATION FORMS are available on-line (www.BlueWaterBabies.org), at your local church, or at the pregnancy center, 1211 Griswold Street in Port Huron.
Walkers can raise funds ONLINE with their own page which they can promote on Facebook.
