The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center’s 29th annual Walk for Life is Saturday, Sept. 10.
You can support center’s mission by making a donation or pledge today.
The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is a group of Christians who have joined to assist women who are experiencing unplanned pregnancies. The center’s goal is to save the lives of unborn babies and to show each client that she and her child are cared for.
The annual Walk for Life is one of the largest fundraisers each year for the center. The purpose of the walk is to raise funds for the pregnancy care center, to show community support for the pro-life cause and to celebrate life.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 10 at the large shelter house at Baker Park. There will be music and free T-shirts for adults pledging $30 or more and for children 12 & under pledging $5 or more.
At 9 a.m., there will be a prayer and the 2022 Walk for Life around Baker Park begins. The walk is just a little over a mile long.
There is a continental breakfast at 10 a.m. following the walk, where prizes will be given out and participants have time to fellowship with the HCPCC Board of Directors and other supporters.
People can still support the Walk for Life, even if they are unable to walk that morning. They can still gather pledges and join other Pregnancy Care Supporters that morning at Baker Park.
Pledge sheets are available in the Henry County Pregnancy Care Center’s summer newsletter or at the center during regular business hours, 1-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
This year’s Walk for Life sponsors include 1000 Degree Wood-Fired Pizza, Huffman Family Chiropractic, Spiceland Wood Products, Citizen State Bank, Raintree Vision, New Castle Pediatrics, Williams General Concrete, Inc., Knightstown Friends Church, Don Criswell Construction, Senior Helpers, Sproles Family Funeral Home, D&J Lawn, B. Jackson Appraisal Company, Olive Leaf Landscaping, Edward Jones, Nest, Devine Painting, A & R Garage Door, Wearly Monuments, R. E. Construction, Ace Hardware, Platinum Properties, ASI, Eastern Indiana Pallet Liquidators, Stocktone Custom Shop, American Rental and McGrady Pharmacy.
The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is located at 415 S. Main St., Suite A, New Castle.
Call 529-7298 for more information, visit www.hcpcc.org or follow ”HCPCC Henry County Pregnancy Care Center” on Facebook.
Women visiting the Pregnancy Care Center can receive free pregnancy tests and guidance from trained volunteers. The support continues after the baby is born. The center provides just about anything an infant or child would need.
Families can receive diapers, formula and children’s clothing that have been donated to the Pregnancy Care Center. Donors also bring in high chairs, cribs, car seats and strollers.
People can also support the Pregnancy Care Center needs right now by donating items for Newborn gift bags, Pull-Ups, disposable diapers size 5 & 6, baby wipes and, always, baby food.
Drivers who buy a “Choose Life” license plate are also supporting the Henry County Pregnancy Care Center. The local Bureau of Motor Vehicle’s has plates on-hand, it’s as simple as letting the BMV employee know you’d like one.
The cost is $40 (in addition to other normal registration fees) with $25 coming directly back to the center.
“What a great, easy way to publicly witness your support of the sanctity of human life while supporting our local center,” the HCPCC said in its summer newsletter.

The Pregnancy Care Center is affiliated with the national organization Care Net (Christian Action Council) and supported solely by donations from churches, businesses, organizations and individuals.
