Why 'I RUN for LIFE'

WHY RUN for LIFE

Participating in the CCWS 5K for LIFE is not only good for your life, it helps to SAVE someone else's!

When you sign up for the CCWS 5K for LIFE, you are supporting the mission of Chester County Women's Services; To educate and empower individuals and their families to make life-affirming choices. This is accomplished through education, resources, and support. 

Ella was kicked out of her foster home at age 17. She was alone. By age 23, she found herself in a serious relationship and pregnant. She did not know what to do or where to go. Someone recommended Chester County Women's Services to her and despite not wanting to walk through our doors, she did. Inside our center she found hope. She saw her baby on the ultrasound and knew she was going to pursue parenting. Our staff came alongside her and taught her how to be a good parent, equipped her with material resources, and connected her to other community agencies for help. Ella learned relationship skills, how to budget, and all about Jesus. She states that she is a happily married, mother of two, college graduate now because of the strength she found in God and the support of CCWS. We love Ella's story because now she works here at CCWS as the Family Advocate Coordinator and is dedicated to empowering men and women with the education and resources they need and ultimately find HOPE. 

YOU make this kind of story possible.
