Annual Walk for Life a success

This week’s bouquets go to:

Pregnancy Services of Delta County would like to thank the individuals, families, churches, and businesses who recently participated as Walkers or Sponsors during their 5th Annual Walk for Life. “We are so grateful that we live in a community that values life for mother, father, and child,” stated Audra Buchmiller, executive director. “Those who are a part of our ministry are showing women and families experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, that they are not alone, there is hope, and they are loved.” Over 300 people came together to Walk for Life on Sept. 15, raising more than $32,000. “These gifts of generosity will help us to continue to provide our free and confidential services,” stated Buchmiller. “This year Lilah’s Legacy, a family team who walked in loving memory of their precious little girl, raised funds specifically for us to provide new and needed pregnancy/infant loss support services for our community as well.” Pregnancy Services of Delta County currently offers lab-quality pregnancy testing, pregnancy option education regarding abortion, adoption, and parenting, an Earn While You Learn parenting program, Man-to-Man mentoring, a family resource room, and a 24 hour pregnancy helpline. “We also offer post abortive support for anyone who has ever been affected by abortion,” shared Buchmiller. “Currently, we are searching for a new location to expand our ministry and provide additional resources for women and families, including ultrasound services”.

Through donations and participation in the Escanaba Community Run, Escanaba Public Safety was able to raise $2,987 for Special Olympics of Michigan.

The Escanaba Community Run, which is organized by Escanaba Public Safety Department in conjunction with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics in Michigan, took place Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Participants walked, ran and biked the two mile route from Elmer’s County Market parking lot to Ludington Park.

Many local businesses donated to the cause, where all the proceeds went towards Michigan Special Olympics.
