Alpha Family Center's 23rd Annual LifeWalk and MORE!

Come one come all to Morley Park Saturday June 16, 2018 for Alpha Family Center’s annual LifeWalk fundraiser. This year’s theme is “25 years for LIFE!”. We will be celebrating over 25 years of serving individuals and families in our community.

We will have our usual 2.5 mile praise and prayer LifeWalk and the 5K LifeRun, this is a timed run with medals of participation being awarded. and a FunRun a free event for children ages 5-11 in additional to several new events.

New this year we will have a Baby & Me LifeCrawl. This will be a fun activity for infants and their parents to participate in. Our second new event is a cycling event LifeRide, this is a leisure ride on the White Pine Trail, with your choice of either a 10, 20, 30 or 40 mile open course (HELMETS ARE REQUIRED).To participant in either the LifeRun and LifeRide participants will need to collect a minimum of $50 in donations (this is in lieu of a registration fee). As before there will be incentives and Grand Prizes offered to those who collect donations. Another change for this year is that  participates will be required to sign a liability waiver before participating in the ride, walk or run..  

Also new this year we will have a FundEasy webpage for LifeWalk. Participants may chose to create their own custom fundraising page to share on social media or maybe you would like to form a team page and challenge other teams.
