Virtual Walk/Run FAQs
The Life-a-Thon Virtual Run & Walk is an opportunity to come together, wherever you may be, to share your love for Life and protect a child's right to live and be loved.
Simply make a gift on our registration page, and pledge to run or walk a 5K, and collect sponsor donations for your participation. In recognition of your pro-life commitment, all registered Virtual Life-A-Thon participants will receive a finisher’s medal!
What is a Virtual Walk/Run?
Some of our friends/partners are busy the day of the event or live in different parts of the country. Many worry they can't participate in fundraising events. But now you can...
Do I get a real medal for participating?
Yes! All registered Virtual Life-A-Thon participants will receive an actual finisher’s medal in the mail.
Stay tuned to Life-A-Thon on social media for this year’s medal reveal!
When can I make a gift?
The Life-A-Thon registration page opens in late winter (watch your email!) and will stay open until the end of the Life-A-Thon. You can register, make a gift, and gather sponsorships any time during that period.
Where can I run or walk?
Anywhere! Trails, treadmills, or wherever you can safely. Get out and get active in your local community. Encourage your family, friends, and fellow pro-lifers to do the same. Just be sure to stay safe!
Do you need proof that I actually finished my run or walk?
No, all Virtual Run & Walk donors will receive finisher medals, and there is no need to report any results. We do encourage you, however, to share your experience online by posting photos and videos on our Facebook event page, or anywhere on social media using #lifeathon.
How can I let others know I’m participating?
Follow the Virtual Life-A-Thon on Facebook and Twitter. Then, share your training photos, medal pictures, and race day festivities using the hashtag #lifeathon.
Does my gift impact current programs?
Yes! Your gift will help provide our free services to vulnerable clients and protecting a child's right to live and be loved.
Iwant to run or walk in support of WELS Lutherans for Life, but unfortunately can’t make a gift at this time. Can I still participate?
Yes, we encourage everyone to show their pride and share photos of your experience using #lifeathon. Only registered Virtual Life-A-Thon participants will be recognized with a finisher's medal.
Why a walk/run?
Since 1982 we've been protecting a child's right to live and be loved by providing real help and real hope to abortion-vulnerable mothers. WLFL has provided countless mothers, fathers, and families with alternatives to abortion -- and saved countless babies' lives. By making a tax-deductible gift, you are helping to ensure that the Greater Milwaukee community will continue to have gospel centered, pro-life services to make a difference between life and death.
I can’t get out and run or walk on the same day as the Life-A-Thon. Can I still participate?
Yes! Get out and run or walk whenever it is most convenient for you. Be sure to share your experience online using #lifeathon. We'd like to feature your submissions!
