On Saturday, May 6, we gathered at Tracy Community Church to "Walk With Her". There was a little bit of rain, but that didn't stop our 97 walkers and 30 volunteers. This was a multi-generational event with people of all ages coming together to show their support for the Pregnancy Resource Center of Tracy - rain or shine! Proceeds from Walk for Life go to helping PRC of Tracy continue to reach and serve women who are experiencing unexpected pregnancies (and their families). 


This year, walkers had the ability to create a team and walk as a group. We would like to thank the following teams for their participation and their team leaders for their leadership!
