Walk for Life 2020 Fundraiser

Register or Give

Walk For Life 2020 is now ONLINE! You can make a difference even from a distance. Fundraise at your own pace. 

Arise and move: walk, dance, work-out, whatever you need to do from your safe social distance! 

Submit funds by 5pm on Friday May 1, 2020, to earn rewards and compete for prizes. Records funds online, or send postmarked by 5/1, or deliver to either clinic location. Remember: 5pm!

We will celebrate together with a party this summer!

Walk for Life 2020 ONLINE is a family-friendly fundraising event to benefit the work of the Pregnancy Resource Center of the New River Valley. We can’t wait to celebrate all that God is doing in the ministry of the PRC by working together to MOVE for LIFE!  

This year we moved online in order to continue to support this important ministry.  Your health is important so –for now– lets stay at a safe social distance. As soon as our communities can gather again, we will celebrate together!

Choose how you move – bike, walk the dog, join a friend or a few, dance, exercise, rock in a rocking chair, . . . endless possibilities!

FAQ about an Online Walk

Do I participate by Walking?

Yes, you can!  But feel free to change to an activity of YOUR choice.  Through the online platform, you pick the activity, on your own or with member(s) of your team:  walk, run, fish, rock, knit, mountain climb, bike, do aerobics or more. We do ask that if you bake, that you bring us samples.

When do I participate in my chosen activity?

Be creative! Hopefully, by Friday, May 1, whenever you fit it into your schedule! Perhaps your team (of 10 or fewer people) would find time/way to be together with appropriate distancing, of course.

Do I collect money?

 “Do I still collect sponsorships?”  Yes, please. This is a needed fund-raiser to support the women in the NRV with help and hope.

 “Do I need to physically collect the money?”  We will actually do this for you! When done on-line at walkforlifeNRV.com, your sponsor can choose to pay now, electronically, or to give a pledge to pay later.  We will send them a pledge reminder after the event to anyone who says they will sponsor you that did not make a payment electronically. Just be sure they entered (or you enter) their contact information onto your on-line page.

What happens on Friday, May 1

If you’ve participated entirely online, your sponsorships are automatically recorded for our office; no further action needed. (Don’t forget you can enter any pledges your sponsors have told you about too!)

If you prefer, you can drop off your pledges at the Blacksburg office on Friday, May 1 by 5 pm, OR by mail (postmarked 5/1).

We will all celebrate with a PRC Walk for Life Event video on 5/1 featuring our client walker, our director’s update and a showcase of our event sponsors.

What about prizes for the top fundraising individuals and teams?

An awards presentation video to be released on Friday, May 8, 2020, to all registered Walk for Life Participants. 

What about rewards for my fundraising efforts?

 You can pick up your rewards at our future Celebration event, the date of which we will announce as soon as possible, pending pandemic restrictions. See the graphic below for rewards you can earn.

Can I still participate even if I don’t live in the NRV?

YES!  This is a perfect platform to support us from any distance!
