Our annual Walk for Life uses peer-to-peer fundraising. In the weeks leading up to the walk, walkers ask friends and family to sponsor them by donating or pledging to Birth Choice. Walkers can fundraise online, with our paper walk forms, or both. All walkers must register online. Check out the tools below to make fundraising a breeze! All funds go to Birth Choice in Jackson, Trenton, and the operational costs of our mobile unit. Church liaisons can find helpful tools to recruit walkers here.

The walk is 2 miles long, and we will have food, music, games, jumpers, distracted and drunk driving simulators, emergency response vehicles, and a Madison County Fire Department Puppet Show. We have prizes for walkers who raise $250 or more. Walkers who raise $500 or more and liaisons who have five or more walkers registered under their name will be entered into our grand prize drawing, a restaurant gift card bundle worth $500.

Each baby is God's precious work of art! "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139: 13, 14, 16, NIV #BCwalkforlife

Birth Choice supports women by providing free pregnancy confirmations with ultrasound and accurate, up to date information on pregnancy, abortion precedures and risks, and STIs. They walk with women throughout their pregnancies by offering earn-while-you-learn parenting programs. Last year, 112 pregnant students earned "mommy money" for clothes, diapers, baby food, baby beds, and more!

I’m Walking for LIFE because Jesus says we are to GO into all the world and preach the Gospel –what better place to start than our own back yard? There are women and men right here in West TN that are in desperate need of Jesus.
At Birth Choice, the gospel was presented 762 times last year, and I’m Walking for Life because I want to support this ministry that shares the gospel every day! #BCwalkforlife

Birth Choice's Save The Storks mobile medical unit is purchased and is currently being manufactured! It will likely arrive in early 2020 and will service Hardeman, Haywood, and Fayette Counties. Would you help Birth Choice as they expand their services?

"He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to ALL creation," Mark 16:15, NIV. That includes sharing the gospel to moms, dads, and their babies! #BCwalkforlife

Helpful Tips:
  • Branch out. Ask people you've never asked before to sponsor.
  • 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.
  • Cash donations of any amount are gratefully accepted and encouraged, but donations under $25 will not receive a receipt. 
  • Don't bother asking people who pledge less than $10 or donate less than $10 online. The online transaction fees and the cost of billing and postage for receipts add up for Birth Choice.

Did you know that the Gospel was shared 762 times at Birth Choice last year? Or that 125 babies were saved from abortion in 2018 alone? Birth Choice is able to operate based solely on donations from the community; they don’t take any government funding.
