Why a Virtual Walk/Run? 

SLM wants to raise awareness about our life-giving and life-saving medical services and educational support in the Northern Virginia and surrounding communities.  We need to continue to raise support for our ministry this year so that we can keep up with providing compassionate medical and counseling care to educate and equip women in crisis pregnancy situations. All donations raised through “Stepping Out for Life” will be given to offering critical client services for women who come to our centers at a crossroads of decision. “Stepping Out for Life” will allow walkers and runners to come together and support our mission outreach in the Northern Virginia community!  

When and Where Will it Take Place? 

This Walk/Run will be virtual, meaning that teams or individual walkers/runners can complete their walk or run on their own schedule! Teams will be led by Team Captains who will determine the location and time between October 8 and 23 for their team’s walk or run (see below for more details on Team Captains)! If you decide to walk/run on your own, it’s up to you to set your time, course, and distance!  

How do I join? 

We invite anyone with a passion to support “Life in Christ…Life in the Womb” to join the Walk/Run!  There are different options for participation: you can participate by registering as either a Team Captain or as a Walker/Runner who can join a team. You can also complete a walk or run by yourself as an Individual Walker/Runner. And if you can’t participate by walking or running, you can still support SLM and help us save more lives and see lives transformed! 

Team Captains: gather a group (limited to 20 people) and represent SLM to your team! Consider who you’d like to join your team: you can invite your family, Bible study group, youth group, coworkers, neighbors, etc. You will determine the date, time, and location for your team’s walk or run, and distribute info flyers and donation cards to your Walkers/Runners. All Team Captains will receive a free t-shirt! Consider registering as early as possible so you can pick up your Team Captain packet and t-shirt on time! 

To sign up as a team captain, REGISTER HERE and create a new team by clicking “Add a Team” on the  form. This will automatically make you Team Captain for your team! 

*You will receive an email with more detailed instructions on your Team Captain responsibilities soon after registering. Please reach out to adriana.heim@slmpregnancy.org if you have any questions.   

Walkers/Runners: show up on race day (a day or days of your choosing) ready to take on the course with your team! Be in contact with your Team Captain to find out when and where your walk or run will be. 

To sign up as a Walker/Runner, REGISTER HERE and click the drop-down menu to select the team you wish to join. 

Individual Walkers/Runners: you also have the option to complete a walk or run on your own! If you’d like to determine your own course and pace, you can REGISTER HERE and select “I don’t have a team” from the drop-down menu.  Registration is completely free, but please consider making a donation when you sign up HERE 

If you want to participate but are unable to do so, you can still play a part by giving toward the Walk/Run!  Supporting a Team or an individual Runner/Walker is a great way to tangibly help us! 

Giving Method Options: 

  • REGISTRATION FUNDRAISER PAGE: Your Team Captain will have a link to their team fundraiser that they can share with you.  
  • MINISTRY SUPPORT CARD PLEDGE: Your Team Captain will give you a ministry support card on your walk/run day. You can fill it out and give it back to your Team Captain, or mail it back to SLM in the included return envelope.
