Hundreds of Mat-Su residents participated in this years 5K for Life on June 17, a fundraiser for HeartReach, a pro-life center that helps women and young parents who may feel unprepared to care for a baby.
The all-ages event included a toddler dash as well as bicycle, running and stroller races, all geared to raising money for pro-life outreach in the Mat-Su.
HeartReach Center gives parents options and resources to defend and welcome the life of their unborn child. Launched in 1985, the center provides free professional medical services, parenting workshops, abortion recovery classes, medication that can reverse chemical abortion drugs, and a no-cost market for parents with items such as clothes and baby formula.
