In a huge community-wide effort to support the Eastern Pregnancy Information Clinic, affectionately known as the EPIC Center, we are hosting a 5k and 1 mile Walk 4 Life! Join us in working off those extra holiday pounds and supporting what we do! Our race offers the option to runners for a regular 5K, families to walk a 5K, or anyone to walk at least one mile –all of it to show your support of L.I.F.E (Loving Individuals For Eternity!).
Why this is a good cause:
These funds will help the center continue to provide free pregnancy testing, limited ultrasound, and pregnancy support services to young women and men in our community who find themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy. We offer prenatal and parenting classes in exchange for free baby supplies. We have the pleasure of serving Craven, Greene, Lenoir, Jones, and Pamlico Counties. Ultimately we’re here to help families thrive!
