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!
5K (INCLUDES ONE FREE T-SHIRT*)
• EARLY BIRD: Now through April 1st – $30
• Late Registration*: April 2nd through race day – $35
*No free T-shirt after these dates
1 Mile Walk For Life – To register please contact the New Bern office at 252-638-4673. To enter to win the $500 CASH PRIZE giveaway & several other yummy-practical prizes, you’ll need to raise sponsorship for your walk. Here’s what you do:
Ask everyone you know to sponsor you! Your sponsors have the option to let you collect their money, pledge online right here on this site by clicking the ‘DONATE NOW’ tab in the upper right-hand corner (they will have to fill out their own info AND state YOUR name—the name of the person they are sponsoring), or be billed by the center.
Bring your completed pledge form(s) & any monies collected on race day. Walk up to the ‘WALKERS’ side of the registration table and let them know you’re submitting your sponsorship pledge form.
Bring the whole family—RAIN or SHINE and get ready to walk your mile in support of what we do here at the EPIC Center! Thank you in advance for your time and effort, and may the best man, woman, or child win!
