This Month's Update:

June 1, 2024


Dear Friends,


It is with much enthusiasm that I announce CRADLE’s 19th annual Walk for Life will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2024!  We eagerly anticipate this event all year!  The Walk for Life is a great time of fellowship with other pro-life supporters!  It’s a fun day for the whole family!  We would be thrilled to have a large crowd for this year’s Walk for Life.  When we gather together in support of life, it shows the community that life, in all stages, is valuable and worth protecting.  We want to speak up for those who can’t yet speak for themselves.  Let’s be their voice to get the message out that everyone has a right to life and was created with a purpose!


Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.  ~Jeremiah 1:4-5


In addition to being the voice for babies in the womb, we also want to show love to those who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy situation and assist the moms, dads, and grandparents who are in need of support and a helping hand.  It is our goal at CRADLE, to show the love of God to everyone who walks in the door.  It’s our desire to meet people right where they are, be a listening ear, give biblical counsel, teach parenting education, hand out Bibles, present the Gospel, conduct Bible studies, offer spiritual guidance, and help provide the items needed for our clients and their children.  Through showing the love of God and helping with material needs, we hope to encourage our clients to choose life for their babies.  All life, born and preborn, is precious and a gift from our Heavenly Father.  Every life is created with a purpose. 


We would love for you to join us!  The Walk will begin and end at CRADLE, 1112 Gallia Street, Portsmouth, OH.  Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the Walk will start at 9 a.m. 


What to look forward to:

  • No registration fee (gratefully accepting tax-deductible donations of any amount)

  • Easy walk route (for walkers of any age; stroller friendly)

  • Free T-shirt for all walkers (size guaranteed if pre-registered by Saturday, July 27th)

  • Face painting and balloons for children

  • Free refreshments

  • Bouncy house

  • Live music

  • Food vendors

  • Individual and team prizes for those that raise the highest dollar amount in donations

  • Fellowship with like-minded individuals


The funds raised through this Walk will help us continue serving families in the surrounding communities.  There are different ways to get involved.  Consider forming a Walk Team and collectively raise donations or join as an individual walker.  We would love for you to become a Walk sponsor and promote your church, business, or organization on the back of the Walk T-shirts.  Walk sponsors can also honor loved ones by adding “In memory of…” on the back of the shirts. You can be a prayer partner and join us in praying for the Walk, our clients, volunteers, staff, and Board.  If you’re unable to join us in person for the Walk for Life this year, there are several ways you could still bless the ministry with a donation.  Donations can be mailed to CRADLE at 1112 Gallia St. Portsmouth, OH  45662.  You may also come by the office or donate through the PayPal QR code below or on our website  If interested in becoming a Walk sponsor, please check the box on the enclosed registration form to receive further information or contact us.


For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.   I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.   ~Psalm 139:13-14


CRADLE is a nonprofit, pro-life ministry that is dependent upon God’s provision through supporting churches and faithful donors.  Thanks to your giving, we are able to ease burdens both materially and spiritually by providing maternity, baby, and toddler necessities while also offering biblical counsel.  This is a life-changing ministry that is a blessing to be a part of!  Through your prayers and donations, you are making a positive impact in the lives of our clients and their children.  Thank you for your generous support of CRADLE!  Let’s join together and be their voice!  Perhaps, we were created for such a time as this.  Come be a part in making a lasting difference!  I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the 2024 Walk for Life!  We hope to see you there!

Serving with joy,
