This Spring, Ruth Harbor marks 20 years of providing hope and life-change through housing, transportation, counseling, life-skills, spiritual guidance, and training; whether young moms choose to parent or place for adoption.
On Saturday, May 8, we're hosting our annual "Walk For Life" to raise awareness and financial support for the moms and babies we serve. Walk anytime on your own OR safely join us in person on SATURDAY, MAY 8, at Ruth Harbor Des Moines anytime between 9:30 and 11:30 A.M.
Participating in the Walk is great! However, being a SPONSORED WALKER is what provides life-change for young moms.
Q: What COVID safety measures will be in place for the in person event on Saturday, May 8th?
A: Instead of one large group gathering and walking together, participants can arrive anytime between 9:30am – 11:30am to walk at an “open house” style event. Staggered start times will make social distancing easy, and everything will be outside.
Q: What if I don’t feel comfortable walking in-person, or am unable to walk on Saturday, May 8th?
A: Feel free to register to attend virtually in order to walk anytime on your own or with your household at a date, time and location that works for you.
Q: How do I earn a free commemorative t-shirt?
A: Raise $250+
Q: Can I change my attendance type? I registered to participate virtually but now wish to attend in person.
A: Please contact Aimee@RuthHarbor.org to request this change.
Q: What prizes are being awarded for the prize drawing?
A: Free tickets to the following events: Des Moines Menace, Fridley Theatres, Science Center of Iowa & Scheels.
