The Hope for Salem Run/Walk is an event that supports the Hope Pregnancy Clinic, which offers free services to women who are unprepared for pregnancy. Participation in this event helps to provide a compassionate and confidential environment for patients to be heard and receive accurate information and medical care.
This year’s event is going virtual! So, what does that mean? How does one do a run virtually? This is how it works:
· Register to participate in the Run/Walk. Registration is $25 for adults 18 yrs+ and $10 for youth ages 6 to 17.
· Fundraise for Hope. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you and donate to the life saving work being done
at Hope Pregnancy Clinic.
· On August 15th run or walk your distance (10K, 5K, 1K) wherever you choose. Email or text your time to our
timing company Huber Timing. If you can’t get out on August 15th, you’ll have until August 25th to run/walk your
route and submit your time. Check out our Virtual Timing page for more details.
Teams are still welcome! We love teams! When you register, you can put in the name of your team and all team fundraising will go towards your team goal.
Prizes! The top male/female runners in the 10K and 5K courses will receive prizes. And we will still have prizes for the teams and the individuals who raise the most money. The coveted Golden Binky Award will go to the top fundraising team.
The Hope for Salem Run/Walk is a fundraising event that invites you to make a life-saving impact in your community. Funds raised support the free services we offer to women in our community. Hope provides free, excellent medical care – pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, options counseling – plus so much more. Hope provides a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment for women who are facing unplanned pregnancies. We empower women to make healthy, life-affirming decisions about their pregnancies. Ask your friends, family and co-workers to join you in supporting Hope and be sure to let them know what Hope means to YOU. Your care for our patients will be a great catalyst for others to get involved.
Registration is now open! Click HERE to register.

You can support women making life-affirming choices by helping to provide needed maternity clothes. Get involved by hosting a maternity shower, shopping our Amazon wish list, or cleaning out your closet.
We accept maternity clothes year round. Here is a list of items that we accept: Maternity & Baby Items
The 2020 Baby Bottle campaign will occur with some modifications in method and timing. Due to our current environment, and because our churches are currently closed for gathering, we are offering alternative ways to be involved and support the life-saving work that happens at Hope Pregnancy Clinic.
The (physical) baby bottles will be available - we are working with church leaders to decide how best to distribute bottles to those who wish to have them. The bottles have been in isolation in our basement for more than six months so they have not been exposed to the virus. Safety protocols will be followed during all distributions.
This year, we will also offer no-touch options for supporting Hope through this campaign.
1. Online donation forms
2. Text to give
3. A mailed response card
4. Giving through your church
At Hope we value both mother and baby, knowing that when we provide the help and support that the mother needs, she is able to make a choice for life. This campaign is a great way for your congregation or group as well as families with young children to talk about compassion and showing God's love to those in need. All of the funds collected go directly to our free patient care.
