Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a walker for The Walk! Your partnership is a great encouragement to us.

To sponsor someone you know is walking with us:

  • Contact your walker and sign up on their pledge form
  • Or donate now by credit card via our secure site

If you are not walking yourself or are not associated with someone who is, you can still help!

  • E-mail elc@peoriarescue.org with the amount you would like to sponsor. Please list "Women's Ministries" as your walker. You will receive an invoice for your pledge.
  • Or donate now by credit card via our secure site. Please list "Women's Ministries" as your walker.

Community Participation

The Walk could not exist without the involvement of our community. Our goal is to make local churches, community groups and individuals aware of the services the Empower Life Center and Esther House offer. These ministries serve residents within our community and depend on the financial and volunteer support of the local community.

If you would like your church or group involved in The Walk but currently have no liaison promoting the event, please contact us! Call us at (309) 688-0202 or email elc@peoriarescue.org to get more information.
