Due to COVID-19 restrictions in place Alpha is hosting a Virtual LifeWalk this year. Although we will not be gathering together for this year's fundraiser, there's nothing that says we can't still have fun while fundraising for the life-affirming ministry of Alpha Family Center.
Pledge forms and instructions are being mailed to our past LifeWalk, LifeRun and LifeRide participants. If you need more pledge forms they will be available at Alpha or you can download from here.

Alpha has decided to begin the conversion process from a pregnancy care center to a pregnancy medical center and had hoped to begin raising the additional funds needed to do so during LifeWalk. By making the conversion to a medical center we will have the ability to provide FREE ultrasounds. We understand the important role ultrasounds play in a woman’s decision when faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Ultrasounds have proven to change minds and save lives as women see and hear their babies. If anyone would like to make an additional contribution directly to our Ultrasound project “Vision for Life” we would greatly appreciate your support in this life-saving effort.
Alpha’s Virtual LifeWalk “20/20 Vision for Life!” T-shirts are available to purchase this year. Prices are $10-$12 and all profits from the sale of T-shirts will go directly into the “Vision for Life” ultrasound fund. T-shirts may be purchased when you register as a participant through FundEasy or in person at Alpha. UPDATED 5/30/2020 Each participant that registers through FundEasy and collects $200 or more in pledges will receive a FREE T-shirt (one free T-shirt for every $200 collected). The final T-shirt order will be placed on September 8th. You will be notified when T-shirts are available for pickup. *Not final design
Information and Instructions
Our theme for this year’s LifeWalk is “20/20 Vision for Life”. Hosting it virtually means those who participate will need to use social media (FundEasy), phone calls, and emails to connect with their family, friends and co-workers to request their pledge of support. The virtual event runs from April 27th through Sept 1st. Each participant who collects $500 or more in donations and/or pledges will earn a chance to win this year’s Grand Prize (TBD). We will announce the winner of Grand Prize on Alpha’s Facebook page after September 1, 2020.
Our goal this year is to raise over $25,000. Together we can make a difference for LIFE!
Use the enclosed pledge form (two-sided form) to record those who commit to making a pledge of support. You may also go to our website www.alphafamilycentercs.org to print off additional forms or pick up more at Alpha. See the several ways donors may fulfill their pledges.

Teresa Hathaway, Executive Director of Alpha Family Center
has issued a personal challenge to everyone!
If $50,000 can be raised by September 1, 2020
($25,000 for LifeWalk and $25,000 for Alpha's Ultrasound Project 20/20 for Life)
Due to the 2020 Red Flannel Festival being cancelled I will still cut and clip off my hair LIVE on Facebook OCtober 3, 2020.
"Am I crazy? Without a doubt, but you know what my hair will grow back. There are babies who aren't given the chance to grow in the womb because their mom believes they have no other choice besides abortion. That's why Alpha exists to provide moms with other choices so their precious babies can grow & have LIFE! Please share with everyone you know and let's meet the challenge together!"
Affirming lives, purpose and hope always!
