We need sponsored walkers. Will you help? Just follow these four easy steps:

  1. Register to walk. You can register as a family, register under a church, or create a walker team with your friends or church group.
  2. To get sponsors, ask friends, family, and acquaintances for pledges or donations. Use our sponsor form or share your fundraising page via social media, email, or text.
  3. Check out our Walker's Toolbox below for fundraising resources
  4. Turn in your pledges and donations at the walk! (we encourage kids to wear their superhero or princess costumes and adults to wear superhero shirts if they have them!)
* If we are unable to gather in person on October 3rd, we will hold a virtual event and all pledges and donations may be mailed in or dropped off. 
 

Why we walk:

Last year 131 precious babies were saved from abortion when people like you answered God's call to partner with our mission. Now that times look uncertain, women are more likely to choose abortion. Abortion clinics know it and we know it, which is why throughout the pandemic we continued to offer our free, life-affirming services while taking precautions. In fact, 10 babies were saved at our offices during quarantine!

But because we had to cancel or change some of our fundraisers, funding has been down this year while we continue to see an increase in clients. Will you help us reach or even exceed our $50,000 walk goal so we can continue ministering to abortion-minded women?

I’m Walking for LIFE because Planned Parenthood performs over a third of U.S. abortions every year. By the end of 2020, more precious babies will be killed in our country than the population of Nashville. But we can make a difference for life in West TN!

Story to Share

This March a couple came to the Gibson County Birth Choice office. They said that although they were excited when they first found out they were pregnant, they started considering abortion when the pandemic started and things began to look more and more uncertain. But as a result of seeing their baby on ultrasound and learning about their options, they chose life after all! During quarantine, 10 precious babies were saved through God's work at Birth Choice. Will you help Birth Choice reach their $50,000 walk goal so they can continue ministering to abortion-minded women?

Helpful Tips:
  • Branch out. Ask people you've never asked before to sponsor.
  • Aim high! You never know how much people are willing to donate for life!
  • Don’t know who to ask? Ask friends, family, coworkers, church family, neighbors, etc. Just regular folks who believe in our mission. 
  • Use our graphics and sample email, text, etc!
  • Ask the highest donating sponsor to donate first. When people see how much previous sponsors donated, say, $200, they will likely put down a similar amount. If your first sponsor only donates $10, others will likely only donate that amount. Or, consider fundraising with two sponsor forms, one for higher donors and one for smaller donors. 
  • Cash donations of any amount are gratefully accepted and encouraged, but donations under $25 will not receive a receipt.
