The 6-Step Journey to Empower Women

Welcome to The Pregnancy Network’s Walk for Life, where your participation closes the gap between women in the Triad facing unplanned pregnancies and essential services: medical care, education, resources, and mentorship.

As a Walk for Life participant, you play a crucial role in helping us achieve our financial goal of $180,000, the funds required to empower 120 women to face their unplanned pregnancies without fear. It takes $1,500 to provide one woman with comprehensive support; how many women will you empower?

We believe you can empower more women than you can imagine. Here are six steps that serve as your guide to a successful fundraising campaign, offering tools and resources to keep you organized and motivated. Throughout your Walk for Life journey, we are here to assist you at every step. Are you ready? Let’s go!

Start by asking yourself, “Why do I walk?” Your passion for The Pregnancy Network’s mission is the spark that ignites change. When you ask for donations, you’re inviting change. When you ask for donations, you’re inviting your inner circle to join the mission alongside you.

Paint a vivid picture of your commitment. Share with potential donors why you stand with TPN. Here’s a template to kickstart your pitch:

“Will you join me in fueling The Pregnancy Network’s mission? This ministry provides vital services, education, and mentorship to women facing unplanned pregnancies. My goal: $1,500 – empowering one woman to face her unplanned pregnancy without fear.

Your $300 donation could fund a vital appointment for a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy, covering pregnancy testing, STD testing/treatment materials, and essential resources.”

  1. Create Community Buzz.

Spread awareness! The Walk for Life’s mission is to empower 120 to face their unplanned pregnancies without fear, rallying $180,000. Your team is a game-changer! 

Don’t just fundraise – make waves. Let your circle know about The Pregnancy Network. The more you share, the stronger our influence. Take these steps to move the mission forward:

  1. Post on social media 3x
  2. Call/text 5 friends for support
  3. Pray that God will bless your efforts

Keep up the great work, influencer! Your participation echoes louder than you think. Let’s make The Pregnancy Network’s impact heard across the city.

From the moment you put your foot here, this program helps. They just take care of you. They are nice and they give you support. It’s not easy, but God does not abandon us. He always opens doors.”

The Pregnancy Network helped my mindset. They made me feel like I was still that woman; I could still have those kids and still do what I needed to do. We’re just happy now.”
