PS You're My Hero 5K Walk
Regaining confidence after a violent crime can be a long recovery for innocent victims. One member of Woman’s Life Chapter 807 Port Huron, Michigan knows first hand how difficult that can be and decided to help others going through similar situations. Member Mara champions the PS You’re My Hero 5k Walk in memory of her late husband, to raise funds for St. Clair County Victim’s Rights Unit. Now, her whole chapter has gotten involved and this year, members felt honored to participate by hosting a cash raffle. Together, this group raised $515, which was then nearly doubled by Matching Funds from Woman’s Life Insurance Society, for a total donation of $1015! We hope to see more great things from Chapter 807 in 2019!
Ace in the hole! Woman’s Life Chapter 105 Grand Rapids, Michigan members hosted a Bus Trip to Michigan City for fun, gambling, and a tour at a winery – all to raise money for Gilda’s Club, an organization that provides free emotional healthcare to children, adults, families, and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving the death of someone in their life due to any cause. With matching funds from Woma’’s Life Insurance Society, the chapter raised a grand total of $972.31! That’s a fun hand well played!
