Oasis Medical Center’s annual Walk for Life fundraiser will be stepping out again this year after a year off due to the pandemic.
Registration is now underway for the 26th edition of Walk for Life which raises funds for OMC’s wide range of medical and education services.
Center Director Matt Mitchell said they’re excited to be bringing their second largest fundraiser back this year.
“We’re really glad to be able to have it in person,” he said.
Those interested in supporting the effort can pick up a sponsor form at their church, register online at omcwalk.com or call the center at 662-287-8001. Participants are asked to collect pledges from family and friends and all donations are tax-deductible. OMC even handles billing for all pledges over $10.
The walk is set for Saturday, April 17 at Crossroads Regional Park with registration at 8:30 a.m. and the walk at 9 a.m. The one-mile walk is a celebration of the hard work put into the fundraiser.
Mitchell said those who may not be able to walk on that day can walk on their own any other time they wish and anywhere they wish.
Those who raise over $200 will receive a free T-shirt and the top walker and top team will also receive prizes.
All funds from the event go to support OMC’s mission of providing free support for those are dealing with pregnancy and other related issues. Services include Pregnancy Testing & Verification, Info on Pregnancy Options, Limited OB Ultrasound, STD/STI Testing & Treatment, Post-Abortion Recovery, School Sexual Integrity Program, Preparing for Baby, Parenting & Fatherhood Education and Adoption Education & Referrals.
