A big ‘THANK YOU’ to all who attended the Lennon Pregnancy Center’s Annual Walk for Life this weekend. We anticipated around 75 people, and we were not disappointed! All walks of life showed up to celebrate life: clients, donors, community members, friends of friends, and even Zach the office dog!
The walk for life began at Ford Field Park in Dearborn, MI. It was just over 1 mile (for those who are not exercise enthusiast or for those with children), it was a perfect length. The Lennon Center decorated the walking path with chalk designs and signs discussing facts about abortion. Did you know the United States has one of the highest abortion rates out of developed countries*? Did you know the Lennon Center gave 145 FREE ultrasounds in 2013?
Following the walk there were hot dogs, dessert, games, and a real-life fire truck. It was a great time of community and a great time for the Lennon Center volunteers to get to know some of the clients.
Some of our board members even volunteered to make food!
We would also like to say thank you to the Dearborn Farm market for their fruit donation. We could not have made this event a success without the support and donations from our volunteers and community.
