Virtual Walk for Hope 2020
Pregnancy Care Centre (PCC) Edmonton & Barrhead
From JUNE 6TH - 20TH, 2020 Join our 10 Km Virtual Walk to Raise 50K
WALK WITH US
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we have transformed our annual fundraising into a virtual event called "Walk for Hope" that anyone, anywhere can participate in. You can sign up for one, two, or all of the physical challenges, creative challenges, or contests. Walk-in your backyard, walk by tie-dying t-shirts, walk on your street or community park (if safe), draw with chalk in your front street and step forward with us! Are you up for the challenge? Join us as we foster health, safety HOPE, and fun.
YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
Whether YOU are familiar with the Pregnancy Care Centres (PCC) of Edmonton and Barrhead and have supported our work in the Edmonton and Barrhead communities, or are just getting to know us, WALK FOR HOPE has something for you. Our virtual event is a joined effort of two Centres that want to make a difference for individuals and families in their communities during a time of change and uncertainty.
Uncertainty is well understood at the PCC. Uncertainty is a common thread in many of our clients' stories. Covid-19 has created so much uncertainty but there is HOPE we will come through it together.
We are a Christian organization that serves women, men, and the families of Edmonton and Barrhead by offering companionship through an unexpected pregnancy, parenting, and post-abortion care. Through loving connection, we want our clients to know they are NEVER ALONE and are supported. We have walked side by side with our clients for many years, and we need YOUR SUPPORT to be there for them now and in the days to come.

The Health app uses your iPhone's built-in motion sensors to track your walk or run. You can also sign up and download other free apps. These are some that are helpful to establish routes: MapYourRun, Nike Run Club, Strava & MapMyWalk (for iOS or Android)

All you need to do is select your favorite challenges, (you do not need to do all of them and you can do only creativity challenges and still finish the walk!). See our carousel pictures below for details! To start the virtual walk you will need to complete 4 challenges. To complete the walk you will need to get to 10K (15 challenges, $1500 raised funds) just as you would do if you were walking in our Annual Walk in Rundle Park, Edmonton.
