- What happens if it rains?
It is a rain or shine event. We will only cancel in the case of lightning.
- Does all of the money go to Center for Pregnancy Choices Ministry?
100% of the profit from this event goes to support the lifesaving work of the CPC. In 2018 we have a 50K funding gap between expected expensive and expected income. This means it is all the more important we raise money at events like this in 2018 and you can be a crucial part of that by having friends, family and acquaintances sponsor you or inviting more people to the walk. If we had 2000 people in our 40,000 person county walk for live we would blow that funding gap out of the water and that starts with you inviting your network.
- Who do my sponsors make their checks out to?
Sponsors can make their checks out to the Center for Pregnancy Choices. They can also donate online and put WFL18 and your name in the memo. All donations are tax-deductible if all the proper information is collected (full name, phone number, email, mailing address).
