Walk for Life: “Your Story Has Just Begun” and Fall Vendor Festival

Your story has just begun. Every day we work with women and families who need a fresh start. Every day brings that fresh start. Today, let your story be celebrating with us at our annual Walk for Life.


Oct 14, 2022. 11:00 registration. 12:00 Walk. 10:00-3:00 Vendor Show.


Start and end at OCC.

560 West 3rd St. This year we will begin registration at 11:00 at OCC. At 12:00, we’ll be walking through town and back to OCC. This will allow us to be seen by the public. The more people know about us, the more we can help those in need.


The Fall Festival will be held at HILLCREST BAPTIST CHURCH 40 Hallock St from 10-3. 


You can participate by picking up a sponsor sheet from your church or Options Care Center. Sponsor sheets were also sent in the summer newsletter (Call 664-5459 or email jandersen@optionscarecenter.com) (For a downloadable sheet, click here: WALK FOR LIFE 2023_sponsor page.) Or you can gather sponsors online by clicking below and then click “become a fundraiser.” It will give you your own link to share!

Spend a few weeks collecting sponsors and bring all sponsors and your sheet to the walk!

*NOTE: If cash is given, please do not replace with a check. This makes tax tracking difficult for us.  Thank you!


Can’t attend? Live too far away? You can donate below.


We need volunteers to help with this year’s event. We will need help to set up and tear down, especially with our vendor event. We will also need donations of cookies. Please contact Jessie at 716-664-5459 or by emailing jandersen@optionscarecenter.com. Thank you in advance!
