Each year, Caring Network puts on our annual Walk for Caring Network. The Walk takes place in multiple locations around DuPage County. On June 16, the day before Father’s Day, we will have three Walk locations. What a great way to celebrate family together! Each Walk begins at a local church. The locations are: Grace for Life Bible Church in Naperville, St. John Lutheran Church in Wheaton, and Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wood Dale.
The Walk Includes Breakfast, Prizes, and Activities
Our Walks are a wonderful family-friendly event to attend. If you ask us, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a Saturday morning spent outside with family and friends, surrounded by your community, enjoying a fresh, complementary breakfast (as well as a cup of life-giving I Have A Bean coffee at our Wheaton location), and going for a Walk…all to support a great cause–empowering women and saving lives! What’s holding you back from joining old friends and new for a bright morning of encouragement on June 16th? We begin with a quick ministry update, a few uplifting stories, and a prayer for the women and families we are serving that week. We continue with a neighborhood walk to demonstrate support for life, and support for Caring Network Pregnancy Services of DuPage. Additionally, for every $100 you fundraise, you will be entered into a drawing for several great prizes, including dinner packages or a pair of Cubs tickets for a date in July. Or, if you are feeling a bit more competitive, attend the fun run at our Naperville site for a chance to win another great prize! At the Naperville run site, prizes will be awarded to the top man, woman and youth runners.
Help Raise Awareness As Well As Funds
The purpose of our Walk is to raise awareness in the community, to spend time with our amazing supporters, and to raise funds, so that Caring Network Illinois can continue to make birthdays happen by strengthening families and saving innocent lives. Our goal is to raise $65,000 through Walk 2018, to support all of the free services that Caring Network provides: counseling services, pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, ongoing practical support and resource liaising, so that women are empowered to choose life and families are enabled to be strong and healthy.
Join the Walk in Person or Online
Will you join us on June 16th from 9:00am–11:00am at one of our three Walk locations? Check-in and breakfast begin at 8am, so come early if you’d like to share food and fellowship before the program starts. There will also be activities for the kids.

Busy on June 16th? Fear not, you can still walk virtually by joining the online event, going on now through the end of June. Set up a social fundraising page and invite your friends and family to sponsor or join you.
