Pro-life advocates have a busy weekend ahead with two important events: Run for Their Lives 5C Charity Walk on Saturday morning and Life Chain on Sunday afternoon.
Run for Their Lives 5C Charity Walk begins with check-in at 9 a.m. at Brighton Church of the Nazarene, 7679 Brighton Road, Brighton. The cost to participate is $20 for the first ticket and $10 for each additional ticket in the same group or family. Included in the fee are a t-shirt and a chocolate treasure map leading walkers one mile into downtown Brighton where they will be instructed to stop in at designated shops for chocolate treats. All proceeds benefit Pregnancy Help Clinic, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending abortion by providing practical help to mothers who are dealing with unplanned pregnancies. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting the following link: www.PregnancyHelpClinic.com/RunForTHeirLives
Pro-life advocates will have another chance to take a stance against abortion on Sunday, October 7 from 2 to 3 p.m. by standing along Grand River Avenue for the annual Life Chain. Signs with slogans such as “Abortion Kills Children” and “Lord, Forgive Us and Our Nation” will be ready for pick-up at Pregnancy Help Clinic, 7743 W. Grand River in Brighton, starting at 1:30 p.m. the same day. Life Chain is a national event during which participants peacefully stand, holding signs, and pray for an end to abortion.
