Can you imagine a day when every pregnant mother in Illinois chooses life for her unborn child?

It is time to make this vision a reality.

Every year, hundreds of women in your community must decide what they will do when they find themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Thanks to the support of caring individuals like you, these women have a friend in their time of need. For over 35 years, compassionate people like you have partnered with Hope Life Center to bring help to pregnant mothers. You have made free medical services (including pregnancy testing, ultrasound, STI testing) and community referrals available to women who believe abortion is their only option. Through these services, women are finding the answers they need to choose life for their unborn baby. Because of the generosity of individuals like you, 458 mothers have found the freedom to choose life in the past five years. 

The WALK for VISION is an event that benefits our entire community. 100% of the funds you raise will be used to rescue women and children from abortion. We’re excited to see the local body of Christ gather together in unity to pray for abortion to end in our community and to gather resources to rescue women and children from abortion.

Put feet to your passion and participate in this year’s WALK for VISION!

What is a virtual walk?

A virtual walk means that you can choose to walk whenever best fits your schedule. You can walk any day, anytime, anyplace – it still counts! You can choose to walk with your family, friends, church, or on your own. We suggest walking two miles sometime before May 1st when you will pick-up your prize(s)!
