So Many Ways to Show Your Support


Form a Team: One of the most rewarding ways to show your support for Mercy’s Walk for Life is to recruit family, friends and coworkers to participate and raise funds. Teams may represent families, companies, organizations, Mercy departments, schools, clubs and can be as few as five walkers.

Virtual Walking: You may also help support Mercy’s Walk for Life as a Virtual Walker. Virtual Walkers raise funds online or make a personal donation. You can mail all collected donations to the Mercy Foundation office, sleep in the day of the walk, and rest assured that we will put your donation dollars to good work!


Sponsor a Walker: Support friends and neighbors that are walking by making a donation. Every dollar makes a difference!


General Donations: Support our walk by making a general donation online. Every dollar makes a difference and rest assured that we will put your donation dollars to good work!
