Wiregrass Hope Group is excited to host our inaugural Walk for Life on Saturday, May 4, at Dothan Preparatory’s track and field! Join us as we come together as a community to honor and celebrate LIFE. This event is free for everyone, so grab your friends and family and walk for LIFE with Wiregrass Hope Group!

This walk is not an athletic event. Whether you join us for one lap around the track or 10 laps, we welcome everyone! This event is a fun, easy way for your family to make a difference for life! By participating in this event you are helping us shine a light on the services we offer to families in the Wiregrass.

The event will kick off at 9 AM and conclude at 11 AM. Walk at your own pace and the distance of your choosing around the track! Bring the entire family and lace up the kids’ tennis shoes for our 100-meter kid’s dash that will take place at 10:15 AM. The top 3 winners will receive a fun prize! After the kid’s race, stick around for our pastor dash! Local pastors will race to the finish line with the winner taking home a “date night” prize package! Encourage your pastor to come participate and bring your church family to cheer them on!
We want this event to be fun for the entire family, so bring your kids along to enjoy our “kids zone” play area! Inflatables, yard games, and face painting will be available at no cost to you.
