Hike for Life 2020
We are excited for our Hike for Life on Saturday, September 26th! Just like many other things, this year’s Hike for Life will look different than years’ past. However, we are still planning for a fun, family friendly event that will help raise the needed funds to continue our mission. Here is our plan!
2 Location Options
- You can join us in person at the Midway Village Walking Path (6799 Guilford Rd. Rockford.) Our morning at the path will have snacks and refreshments, music, and fun…just no bounce house this year because of the germs ☹ Feel free to wear a mask and do your best to keep 6ft apart as you hike!
- You can walk from home and share your experience on social media with the hashtags #hikefromhome and #lovinglifehikeforlife. You can walk anytime on Saturday the 26th, just be sure to wear your hike t-shirt and snap a picture, or take a short clip of you walking to share with us! We will be “going live” from the event so you can feel like you are with us and not miss out on anything!
Staggered Start Times
If you choose to join us in person at the walking path we will be staggering start times to ensure ability to social distance and still enjoy a fun morning. When you register you can select either:
- 8:30am Start Time, 8:00am Registration
- 10:00am Start Time, 9:45am Registration
If these blocks fill up, we will open one more start time if needed. We will ask all of the 8:30am hikers to exit by 9:45am at the latest.
You can choose to register as an individual for $25 or a family for $50. All registered participants will receive a Hike for Life t-shirt and a goody bag! If you choose to #hikefromhome we will be mailing you your t-shirt and bag. Please register by September 14th to ensure time to mail necessary items. Once you are registered online you will automatically have an online fundraising page created through FundEasy. We encourage you to share your personal fundraising page with all of your family and friends as well as share it on social media. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to ensure the lifesaving work of The Pregnancy Care Center will continue and be totally free of charge to our clients.
This year our Top 5 Fundraising Individuals will receive a VISA Gift Card. The Top Fundraising Church or Business and the Top Fundraising Youth Team will receive a plaque and a surprise group gift.
If you are unable to register online or would still like to collect donations and pledges with the traditional pledge form, please contact Amanda at 815.680.5107 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request those forms and/or to get registered over the phone. We have a limited number of paper forms available, and again would urge as much as possible to utilize the online platform.
Please reach out to Amanda if you have any questions! We know this year may be different, but we also know that God continues to provide and show up in amazing ways as we continue to trust Him every step of the way. And every step we hike is a step of support for LIFE.
