FAQ

What does it mean that this year’s Walk for Life is virtual?

While we wish we could be walking together with all of you at Memorial Park as in other years, given current public health guidance, we will be celebrating the value of human life as we walk in our own neighborhoods. We encourage you to make plans to walk with your family or a small group (while practicing social distancing) and share your experiences with us by tagging @lifenetworkcos and #walkforlifecos on social media. We will also be hosting a live-streamed virtual event, where we’ll share stories of how your fundraising impacts our daily ministry to families in our city, show how some of our staff & supporters are spending their Walk for Life and more! See below for details on our easy drop-off locations for turning in fundraising and picking up your prizes on June 6th.
