Register to participate in Walk for Life, a one-mile fundraising event benefitting Obria Medical Clinics Gwinnett.

We need every church, every small group, every men's group, every women's group, every youth group, and every family to walk and ask friends and family to sponsor them! Funds raised at Walk for Life will help us continue to meet the needs of our community and expand services to include PRENATAL CARE. We believe every woman deserves a healthy pregnancy and every baby deserves a healthy start!

FAQs

Why Walk for Life?

Last year alone, we had 3,918 patient visits. We performed 693 ultrasounds, and 774 pregnancy tests. The funds raised at Walk for Life will help us provide prenatal care and transform more families as we make a stand for LIFE in our community.

What precautions are you taking in light of COVID-19?

We are adhering to the guidelines set forth by the CDC, as well as Governor Kemp's mandates, and are subject to change. Each walker must complete a downloadable health screening questionnaire and a waiver of liability. On the day of the event, walker check-in will be done while walkers remain in their vehicles, which will include a health screening and temperature check. We will practice social distancing, including staggering start times for walkers, and will take every precaution to minimize the risk of virus spread at this event. Please view our Action Plan for a complete list of precautions we'll be taking. 

How far is the Walk?

It's an easy and short 1-mile fun walk to celebrate the lives that will be saved and impacted by the money you have raised! Strollers are welcome at the Walk, too, so feel free to bring your littles.

What happens if it rains on the day of the Walk?

This event is rain or shine. If it rains, bring an umbrella! Be sure to let your supporters know that Obria still needs their support, rain or shine.

How do I get supporters?

Participants get supporters by asking! No one will support you if you fail to ask them. Many people are supported by co-workers, friends, family, neighbors, and local businesses. Some companies also sponsor their employees, or provide matching gifts. Every 9 out of 10 people you ask will say "Yes" so ask away! Check out the Fundraising Toolkit on the page for Walkers to get some tips!

How do donations work?

Donations or pledges are flat amounts (not based on the distance you walk) and are tax-deductible. Your sponsors may donate one of two ways: online through your fundraising page or by check/cash, which they'll give you to and you'll pass along to us.

Why should I use online fundraising?

Participants who use online fundraising raise 3 to 4 times the amount of money than those who do not. It is safe and secure, and you don’t need to handle cash or checks. Send the link to your fundraising page (or your team fundraising page) to friends and family via text message, email, or on social media!

Where do I turn in the money that is not donated online?

For offline donations via check/cash, you may turn them in to us during normal business hours at the Clinic or on the morning of the Walk when you check-in.

How do I (or how does my family) get a t-shirt?

Each walker must raise at least $100 to get a t-shirt. You'll select your shirt size when you register to participate in the Walk. If you have a family of walkers, make sure to register each member who wants a t-shirt so they can receive one by raising at least $100 each! That means if you’re bringing kids who want a t-shirt, make sure you register them, and have them ask friends, teachers, or family members to help them get to $100!

What can I expect on the morning of the Walk?

It's going to be a great morning! Check-in will begin at 8:00 a.m. at our registration tent and we'll provide you with water and a Chick-fil-a biscuit, courtesy of Chick-fil-A Scenic Hwy. The walk will begin at 9:00 a.m.
