Champaign 2021 WALK Update

Thank you to all of our walkers and volunteers that came out to celebrate during our WALK fundraising event on April 17th!  What a great impact through the generosity of all involved in giving of their time, talent, and monetarily to create an incredible event for both the Pregnancy Resource Center and Merci’s Refuge. With your help, we were able to raise $35,925 to help women find restoration and reach their Summit of Hope, exceeding our goal of $32,000! We would like to extend a special thank you to WPEO 98.3 FM for broadcasting the event.

Save the date on your calendar for our annual banquet on October 14th. You won’t want to miss it!

Champaign Banquet 2021

THURS, OCTOBER 14, 2021

Mark Schultz, Speaker

Many artists talk about chasing their dreams but for Christian artist Mark Schultz it’s never been about the chase. Instead it’s about following God’s call. It has led to what looks like an artist’s dream: 2 million records sold to date, ten No. 1 singles, a Dove Award, as well as multiple nominations. Mark and his wife Kate have 4 children. When they were blessed with their last 2 children it was a full circle moment for Mark, who is adopted. Now being on the parental side of adoption, Schultz says he views being adopted by his parents and by God in a totally different way! Join us for an evening of stories and songs that will touch your heart and leave you blessed!
