When: Saturday, October 23rd, 2010
Where: Central Park; located at 1000 Krenek Tap Road, off Earl Rudder Freeway in College Station
Join us in our efforts to support the unborn of today and tomorrow through Hike for Life.
What is Hike for Life?
The Hike has been going on since 1973. Its original mission was to raise funds for crisis pregnancy centers in Dallas. It now seeks to raise money for Crisis Centers throughout Texas as well as seeking to raise awareness of the suffering that surrounds us.
Where do funds go?
Local Crisis Pregnancy Center – Good Samaritan!
How do I get started?
Prior to the actual Hike scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd 9:30am, donations are made through an online portal. Participants must create a username and join the “Knights3205” team. Prewritten email invitations requesting donations are then forwarded to family, friends, coworkers, etc. This is how the bulk of donations are made…by casting the net out as far as possible and inviting others to consider donate to the cause.
