All participants in the Pregnancy Care Services’ fundraising walk will receive a token for free Dairy Queen ice cream.

The annual Walk for Life is Friday with registration at 6 p.m. and the walk starting at 6:30 p.m. at McKenzie Park, 320 S. First St., Hermiston. Participants are asked to collect pledges and bring them to the walk.

Pledge sheets are available at or at Pregnancy Care Services, 105 S.W. Second St., Hermiston. Anyone collecting or contributing $50 or more will receive a free T-shirt. Teagan Birt, youth group member at Solid Rock, is coordinating a contest for youth group — with the one collecting the most money receiving a prize.

“This is one of our favorite fundraisers,” said Debbie Cissna, director. “It is an event every member of the family can enjoy.”

Money raised from the event helps the nonprofit organization in serving clients from the local community. Pregnancy Care Services offers free pregnancy tests, life affirming options counseling, adoption referrals, information about abortion procedures and risks, post abortion counseling and community referrals. The center also offers classes to teach parenting, relationship, and general life skills. All of the services are free and confidential.
