The 29th Annual CPC Steps for Life Walkathon was held on Saturday, September 19 at MacDonald-Ruff Ice Rink/Moore Park in Bryan. We are thankful for over $35,000 that was raised (so far) to help meet operational expenses of the CPC Women’s Health Resource.
Intermittent rain on Saturday morning did not dampen the spirits of participants in the Color Run, Walkathon, and Diaper Dash (a mini-race for toddlers and crawlers). Families enjoyed a fun-filled morning of activities including a bounce house, kids’ games, bake sale and silent auction. Silent auction items included: Cleveland Indians tickets, Toledo Mudhens and Walleye tickets, zoo tickets, a free night at Holiday Inn Express and Minecraft toys for kids. Personalized t-shirts with your child’s or your own handprint were also available for sale.
Walk donations will provide revenue for all four CPC clinics located in Bryan, Defiance, Wauseon and Napoleon. Services are free to anyone experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We provide pregnancy testing, limited fetal ultrasound, counseling and parenting skills classes. We also have free testing for STI’s. In addition, there is a character building education program called Project Respect, which teaches teens in school about sexual risk avoidance. We received generous support from our underwriters as well as coupons from local businesses. Thank you to everyone who participated or made donations. If you were unable to attend the event but would still like to make a donation, please send your gift to CPC Women’s Health Resource, 1410 W. High St., Bryan, OH 43506.
