What is the Walk for Life?

This year on Saturday, June 5th, Life Network will host the 34th Annual Walk for Life! The Walk for Life is a simple way for people of all ages to get involved by actively demonstrating support for the value of human life – and a desire to make a difference in the lives of women, men, students and babies in our community. By raising funds and walking yourself or sponsoring another walker for the Walk for Life, you are directly helping the ministry of Life Network advance its mission to cultivate a community that values life through the love of Christ.

After a unique Virtual Walk for Life in 2020, we’re looking forward to joining with our community to celebrate life in Colorado Springs again! This year, walkers can choose to join with us at Memorial Park in person or if you prefer, to walk in your own neighborhood. To help keep everyone safe, walkers choosing to attend in person will register for a time block. You will select your time when you register online. If you plan to exclusively use your printed pledge sheet for fundraising, you can schedule your time by contacting Alyssa Dwire at adwire@elifenetwork.com or 719-355-1183. No matter what format of the Walk for Life you prefer, our life-affirming ministry is so grateful for your support!

How does the Walk for Life help our community?

The funds raised from this year’s Walk for Life will help the ministry of Life Network continue life-affirming programs that make a difference in the lives of over 15,000 individuals within our community. The FREE services that Life Network provides to the Colorado Springs community include:

– Pregnancy tests & options counseling
– Ultrasounds
– STD testing & treatment
– Baby & maternity clothing
– Parenting education & classes
– Emergency baby supplies
– Post-abortion recovery groups
– Education on sexual integrity and risk-avoidance

  • For every $150 raised, Life Network can provide life-changing services to three women facing unplanned pregnancies. Click here to see more statistics on how your fundraising can make a difference!

The Walk for Life is even more exciting when you participate with a group of friends! A team consists of three or more fundraising walkers or runners. Team members could include your family, your friends, your small group – or any combination of three or more fundraisers! Each team member needs to fundraise individually, and have their own pledge form (paper or online) on Walk day. Be sure to designate one person as the Team Captain. If a team raises over $2,000 in pledges, the Team Captain will become a member of the Life Savers Club and be invited to the 2020 Life Savers Club event in July as a thank you!

As a team captain, just follow the easy steps below to create a team.

1. Identify a unique Team Name (see the list below for examples.)
2. Register yourself: Be sure to enter your team name, and yourself as the Team Captain when you register!
3. Encourage each of your teammates to register online – make sure they enter your team name when they register!
4. Visit the FAQs section of the website for helpful fundraising tips to share with your team!
5. Set a team goal and encourage your team to meet it! Check in with your team members weekly to see how their fundraising is going.
6. Walk on Saturday, June 5th to make a difference one life at a time! You can walk with your team in person at Memorial Park (be sure to sign up for the same time block if you want to be together) or in your own neighborhood or community. Be sure each team member has registered online as a part of your team and/or written your team name on their pledge sheets.

Scriptures to pray over the Walk for Life:

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 108:5 

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  Matt 18-19-20

I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.  Joshua 1:3

“For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” Acts 18:10

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  2 Pet 3:9

Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. Luke 18:1

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thess 5:17

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Eph 6:18

These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication. Act 1:14a

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.  And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men. Col 3:17; 23

What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.  1 Cor 14:15

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1

These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. Now go, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves. Luke 10:2-4

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.  Gal 6:9
The earth is the LORD’s and all its fullness.  1 Cor 10:26
