Walk for Life 2023

Saturday, June 3rd
9:30 AM- 11:30 AM
Wapak Track

Let's be a visual to Auglaize County that we support the sanctity of human life!


This year on Saturday, June 3, the Family Life Center will host the 3rd Annual Walk for Life! The Walk for Life is a simple way for people of all ages to get involved by actively demonstrating support for the value of human life – and a desire to make a difference in the lives of women, men, and babies in our community. By raising funds and walking yourself or sponsoring another walker for the Walk for Life, you are directly helping the ministry of  the FLC to advance its mission to cultivate a community that values life through the love of Christ.


You can raise funds one of two ways: using a sponsor form or using a free online crowdfunding program called Kindful.

Questions and Answers:

Are kids welcome to come?

Absolutely!  This is a family friendly event.  We will have several activities for kids to participate in, all free of charge.  We urge you to accompany your little ones for their safety.

What is the cost to participate?

There is no cost to come and walk.  Those that are interested in helping the Family Life Center raise funds can collect donations and pledges from their family and friends.

What do I do with the money once I have collected it?

If your sponsors want to pay by credit card, they can click the Donate button above.  You can bring any cash or checks with you on the day of the Walk, or drop it off to the Family Life Center during open hours.

How do I get a t-shirt?

Any walker who raises $50 or more will receive a t-shirt at the event.  You will be emailed several weeks before the event to get your t-shirt size.  Your collected donations can be turned in the day of the walk or filled out by your sponsors through our online giving. 

What time should I arrive at the Walk for Life?

The Walk begins at 9:30 AM, but check-in begins at 9:15 AM.


What if  I cannot make it the day of the event?

No worries, you can still participate by being a Virtual Walker! You can still collect funds and then pick a day to walk on your own. We will miss you, but still appreciate your support of the ministry!  You can mail or drop off any pledge forms/payments at 116 E. Auglaize Street Suite B, Wapakoneta, Ohio 45895.


How far is the Walk?

Our Walk for Life will be 2 miles around the Wapak track.  It's the most important 2 miles you will ever walk!  Since we are walking around a track, you can take breaks as you need.


How do I turn in my cash and check donations?

Please hold on to all of your cash and check donations and bring them with you to the Walk event. You will turn everything in that morning when you check-in at the event. If you are a virtual walker, please mail everything to the the Family Life Center at 116 E. Auglaize Street, Suite B, Wapakoneta, Ohio 45895.


Will my donors get a receipt?

Everyone who makes a donation to the Family Life Center AND provides complete, accurate mailing information, will receive a receipt mailed to them after the Walk for Life. 


What is the address of the Wapak Track?

400 W. Harrison Street, Wapakoneta, Ohio 45895
