Clinic to host Walk and Run for Life Aug. 27

by Moira Cullings

PARKVILLE, Mo. — The pro-life Parkville Women’s Clinic (pwc4life.us) will host a Walk and Run for Life on Aug. 27. Check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. followed by a 5k and quarter mile walk at 9 a.m.

The experience will take participants through Parkville’s English Landing Park, located at 8701 McAfee St. Afterward, a pajama party with breakfast, coffee and games will follow. Participants are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs.

“The purpose of this event is to build strong families in our community, fellowship and outreach,” said Carla Killen, “and the funds will go to the programs we offer the families we serve.”

Killen, the pro-life clinic’s director of development, said PWC provides “compassionate care for women and men facing an unexpected pregnancy.”

The clinic offers over 200 education classes, community resources and support, a fatherhood program, limited OB ultrasounds, pregnancy testing and more.

Killen said this type of help is more important than ever.

“In a post-Roe world, women and men will need more compassionate care and support in unexpected pregnancies,” she said. “Now with chemical abortion readily available without medical care, post-abortive care and support will be critical.

“Education, training and support with Christ’s love and compassion is critical and what clients will find at Parkville Women’s Clinic.”
