We had our “Walk For Life” rally today in Jackson. Birth Choice is the one who sponsors this event. I am a volunteer lay counselor at Birth Choice. I have been for 2 years. Birth Choice is a crisis pregnancy center. At Birth Choice we offer free pregnancy tests and free ultra-sound to the girls who come in wanting to know if they are pregnant or not. We also offer counseling on the options available and the risks involved in an abortion. We have parenting classes that goes through all the stages of pregnance, these also include sexual health classes and prepared childbirth classes. We help meet the financial needs of the mothers by giving them points for coming to the classes and doing their homework. With their points they can purchase baby items from our resource room. We also offer spiritual help by presenting the gospel to them as well as doing Bible study with them. Everything we do is centered around the Word of God and we seek to honor Him in all that we do.
We had a great time today. We had a good turn out for the 2 mile walk. I am not sure how much money we raised. We also had NAS CRIB RACES!! They are alot of fun. Contestants create a crib anyway they chose to race. They get trophies for the fastest crib, most creative, and the team that raised the most money. It is a hoot watching the races. One person rides in the crib while another pushes the crib for 2 laps around the track. It is hilarious.
We had some special guests to show up…Minnie Mouse, Cookie Monster, and several clowns. We had popcorn, cotton candy, icees, and games for the kids. It was a great time for all. It was great to see all the people willing to participate in raising money for such a great cause. We had people of all ages represented.
