Pregnancy Care Center's Hike for Life raises more than $20,000
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford aims to offer help to those facing unplanned pregnancies. Saturday's Hike for Life event is one way the Pregnancy Care Center can raise donations for their organization.
Tiffany Staman, Pregnancy Care Center Executive Director, explains, "The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford is funded entirely by private donations so local businesses, individuals, organizations and churches all fund us 100%."
Roughly 150 participants gathered at Midway Village's pathways to hike 1.5 miles. Hikers were able to raise more than $20,000 for the Pregnancy Care Center Saturday morning. Organizers say donations are used to continue providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and parenting education to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy.
The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford is located at 4921 East State Street and 611 West State Street in Rockford.
