The Arkansas Valley Pregnancy Center’s 25th Annual Walk for Life is set for May 9 on the grounds of the center's La Junta office, 118 W. Fourth St.
Open to the community, the day’s activities will include a 5K run, 1-mile walk and family friendly games and food.
Special "guest" at the event will be Ann the Van, from the A Caring Pregnancy Center in Pueblo. Ann the Van is a mobile unit that is able to perform onsite ultrasound.
Statistics show that women who are considering abortion for an unplanned pregnancy will choose life 96 percent of the time after seeing their baby on ultrasound.
