Walk or run with us

JOIN OUR 2020 "VIRTUAL" LIFE WALK & RUN!

Why are we walking/running?
The community of Fredericksburg is WALKING & RUNNING in support of ChoicesMary's Shelter, and Bethany ministries that offer hope and support to our community’s most vulnerable. Join us to foster a culture of life in our community!

What exactly is a virtual walk/run? 
From October 17th through November 17th, walkers and runners can choose when, where, and with whom they’d like to complete their 5k. Take pics, post them, and tag with #LifeWalkFxbg to stay safe and have fun!

How do I participate?

CHOICES

WOMEN'S CENTER

Choices Women’s Center (CWC) serves Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties with a vision of a community that values all human life from the moment of conception. We are a resource center for those in crisis. CWC empowers those facing an unplanned pregnancy with hope and life-affirming choices by providing free and confidential pregnancy tests, ultrasound confirmations, and medical consultations. We educate our clients and their families on subjects such as healthy lifestyles, marriage, relationships, and parenting. CWC envisions a future of healing and wholeness for each client we serve.

bethany christian services

Bethany Christian Services was founded in 1944 and we have been serving the Fredericksburg area since 1989. Our pregnancy counseling program provides free and confidential counseling to women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy. We offer life-affirming options and social services, whether clients choose to parent or choose to make an adoption plan for their baby.  Our domestic and international adoption programs place infants and children in approved forever families. Our mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services. Bethany envisions a world in which EVERY child has a loving family.

mary's

shelter

Mary’s Shelter provides an expectant mother and any additional children she may have with housing for up to three years in order for her to further her education and/or secure employment. She must receive counseling, attend in-house parenting and life-skill classes, and adhere to the program covenants which offer structure, self-discipline, and guidance. This foundation, rooted in the teachings of Christ, ensures that our mothers have the necessary time and tools to work toward their goals and provide for their children, making the possibility of independent living a reality.

GET
INVOLVED

After you register, you will be given a fundraising page in your name. While you are not required to use this tool or raise the amount set (the amount is adjustable), we are asking you to challenge your family and friends to sponsor your walk, in order for our $100,000 fundraising goal to be reached.
