Walk for Hope

The Walk for Hope is a family-friendly community event hosted by the Pregnancy Care Centre to celebrate and increase the impact we have on our community. This annual event strives to raise funds, create awareness, and share the excitement about the important work that PCC does to support women facing unexpected pregnancy.

This year’s Walk for Hope is on Saturday, June 1st! In-person events will be held in two locations, Edmonton and Barrhead. A minimum donation of $25 per person or $150 per family is required for in-person participation (see FAQ for more details). Virtual participation can be specified during online registration and continues until the end of June.

 FAQs

I’m participating virtually. What if I want to walk over several days?

Virtual participants can walk, run, or ride for hope at any time before the donation campaign website closes at the end of June.

Will PCC be gifting t-shirts again this year?

Registrants who raise $200 or more will receive a Walk for Hope t-shirt! T-shirts are distributed by amount raised per person. For example, if a team of five people raises $1,000, that team will get one t-shirt per member. T-shirts are available in limited quantities and sizes, and are given out on a first come, first served basis. Please come by the PCC booth on event day to receive your t-shirt! If you are participating virtually, reach out to us after June 4th to check t-shirt availability and arrange pickup.

What is the difference between registering as an individual or a team?

Teams are a fun way to get together with a group of people to reach an impactful fundraising goal and have fun walking together on event day!

If someone you know invited you to join their team, simply select “Join a Team” on the registration page. You will still need to donate a minimum of $25 for in-person participation on June 1.

If you’d like to create a team and ask your friends and family, or church small group to participate with you, select “Create a Team” and be sure to invite others to join you!

If you prefer to fundraise individually, select “Join as an Individual”.

 How do I register online for children or someone without an email address?

During online registration, there will be a question box prompting you to enter the number of children you will be bringing, and their ages. On registration day, please come to the PCC booth to fill out paper forms for those included in your registration.

What if I prefer to have a paper donation collection form?

Please contact your church liaison or our event coordinator at events@pregnancycarecentre.ca to have a paper form sent to you.

​Is there a registration fee?

Please fundraise and/or personally donate a minimum of $25 per person or $150 per family to participate in the in-person activities. Donations will either need to be made online through your Canada Helps Fundraising Page prior to June 1, or collect at least $25 and bring with you on June 1 so you can participate in the in-person activities. Virtual participation is free!

Will donors get a tax receipt?

Donations greater than $20 are eligible for a tax receipt. Please be sure to provide your contact information!

Can I bring my dog to the event?

Yes, pets are welcome to join! Be sure to keep your pet leashed and clean up after your pet.
