Introducing the 2021
“Move for Life: Walk Run Plus”
Everyone is invited to be part of our 2021 “Move for Life: Walk Run Plus” spring fundraiser! This newly expanded event, our biggest fundraising event of the year, is designed to give individuals, groups, and churches a fun, safe, and healthy way to champion the gospel and the sacredness of human life.
Please note: We are moving forward with our plans for this in-person event in hopes that we can carry them out completely. However, we will adhere to all PA Department of Health and CDC COVID safety guidelines at the time of the event and will communicate revised plans accordingly, if needed.
The 2021 “Move for Life: Walk Run Plus”
What used to be the “Walk Run for Life” is now the “Move for Life: Walk Run Plus”!
There are lots of ways you can “move” for life! Choose to walk or run, OR pick whatever fun activity you’d like to do to get moving in support of the gospel and life.
There are several ways to participate:
From now through May 8th, ask people to support the work of Align Life Ministries by sponsoring you in this year’s Move for Life. Then, put your sneakers on and join us Saturday May 8, 2021 at The Junction Center in Manheim at 9:00 AM for a 5K run or a 1 mile walk.
This year, the walk and the run will be held simultaneously, starting at 9:00 AM. Both the walk and the run will follow a similar route on Junction Road.
- The runners will start first, and will run north on Junction Rd, turning around at Auction Road and heading back toward The Junction Center.
- Walkers will go next – heading north on Junction Road, turning around at the half-mile point, and heading back to the Junction Center.
It’s an easy route for both groups through the scenic farmlands of Manheim. Bring your strollers and your wagons. Participants of all ages are welcome! Runners will be timed by chipped bibs and prizes will be awarded accordingly.
The walk/run will be followed at by a fantastic celebration party at 10:00 am on the Junction Center grounds, complete with a brief ministry update, the awarding of prizes, and free food, games, and bounce houses galore! It’s a wholesome, healthy morning of family fun you won’t want to miss.
If you prefer to participate virtually, this is where the “Plus” comes in:
Pick a safe, healthy, fun activity to do on your own or with your friends/family. Walk, run, bike, hike, jump rope, play basketball … the possibilities are endless! Ask people to support the work of Align Life Ministries by sponsoring you. Then, do your chosen activity offsite – any time between now and May 8th – and send us a picture or short video to let us know what you did. (For an idea of what people did last year, check out this grand finale video and photo album from the 2020 event.) Please note: virtual 5K runs will not be eligible for our medal awards.
For those who wish to participate in the “walk, run, plus” part virtually but would still like to attend the May 8th grand celebration event at the Junction Center in person – please come! All are welcome!

Our fundraising goal for the 2021 Move for Life is $265,000. These funds will be used to provide immediate life-sustaining help to the people Jesus brings us to serve.
Please gather pledges through your online fundraising page (which is automatically created when you register) or download a pledge form and record your pledges. We can send an invoice to your sponsor later, or feel free to collect pledges in person or through the mail. Checks should be made payable to Align Life Ministries.
As you approach people to sponsor you, keep in mind that we’re all experiencing pressures in different ways from the events of the past year, and people may not be able to sponsor you in the same way they have in the past—that’s okay. By the same token, some people may be led to sponsor you for the first time or at an increased level.
To share how Align Life Ministries serves clients, feel free to direct potential sponsors to the “Get to Know Us” page on our website, or offer them a look at one of our client testimony videos on YouTube. By asking people to sponsor you in the Move for Life, you’re giving them the opportunity to be part of this gospel-sharing, life-sustaining work.
Please bring completed pledge forms and collected donations with you on Saturday May 8, or mail pledge forms and checks any time between now and May 8 to

REFLECTING JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL
Families and individuals across our communities are longing for the truth and hope found in Jesus and His Word. We exist to point people to Christ, specifically those who are pregnant, parenting, or post-abortive. You can help them, too. This year’s Move for Life is a great way for us to reflect Jesus and His gospel to our community. Please join us in aligning with Jesus and shining His life.
