Why Run or Walk for the Laurel Pregnancy Center?

Join us for one of the Laurel Pregnancy Center’s major fundraising events! Your support and Partnership enables the Center to support women, their partners and families. All of our services are provided FREE through God’s provision of partners like you. As we walk and run together, we honor one courageous mom, Janet Lynn Dick and we invite you to help us walk along side the many courageous moms who walk through our doors. Click Here to Register Now!

How do I Participate?

Click Here to Register Now! All walkers and runners agree to raise at least $100 in order to officially participate. During your registration, you will be instructed to start your own Fund-Easy page for you to customize and share with potential sponsors (your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers!). Then, just show up on race day and run or walk with your fellow LPC supporters! Goodie bags and t-shirts are included and  there are prizes awarded to the race winners and top fundraiser. Or if you prefer to sleep in, set up a FundEasy page to have people sponsor you sleeping for the Laurel Pregnancy Center! If you need help or have any questions, please contact Beverly Weber at 301.776.9997 or email her at bweber@laurelpregnancycenter.org

Why a Minimum Fundraising Goal?

The goal of the Janet Lynn Dick 5K is to raise as much money as possible to provide for the women and families through the services that the Laurel Pregnancy offers. While we might have more people involved with a lower fundraising commitment (or no fundraising at all), the walk is designed to invite you as our stakeholders to actively support the center and share your passion for what we do with your friends, families and neighbors as you seek sponsors.

Race Details:

Check-in starts at 8AM and the 5K race starts at 8:30 at Pavilion A. The Walk will follow at 9AM.  The path is a 5K, clearly marked through the beautiful paths of Centennial Park with water stations throughout. There will be prizes for top fundraisers and the race winners.

So register today, start your FundEasy page and run with us in a race to give all moms a fighting chance to show their courage!

How do I collect the money?

It’s Easy! If your sponors go through your Fundeasy page, they can give via credit cards or bank draft and you never have to touch anything! FundEasy provides the LPC with a secure, convenient method of online giving. If you have sponsors that would still prefer to write a check, be sure to collect it, then enter it as an “Offline Donation” on your FundEasy page, and mail it to us right away or be sure to bring it the day of the race. (Please contact Beverly Weber by phone or email if you need help with this! 301.776.9997 bweber@laurelpregnancycenter.org) Only sponsorships that are entered into your fundraising page AND received by the LPC staff by the day of the event will be counted towards the Top Fundraiser. The LPC will NOT be invoicing sponsorship this year, all donations MUST be received in hand by the day of the race.
