Run For Life WNY 5k Run & Walk is dedicated to raising funds to benefit organizations in WNY who help women choose life for their unborn child. Past beneficiaries have included Son Rays Ministries, 40 Days for Life, LifeSavers, and the Southtowns Care Center. Through the use of sponsorships to cover expenses, runners can be assured that 100% of their registration dollar is given to the beneficiaries.

The beneficiaries for the race in 2019 are the Southtowns Care Center (who has recently merged with CompassCare Buffalo) and Son Rays Ministries.
A not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide love, support and compassion to women exploring their pregnancy options. Pregnancy tests at local grocery stores are literally kept under lock and key due to theft. The shame of an unplanned pregnancy in a clean and upstanding community is enormous. By joining together, the Southtowns Care Center helps to support and encourage women and their families during pregnancies and after.
From the Womb to Eternity, all life is precious. We offer support that upholds the dignity of life in many ways. SonRays Ministries is an arm of the local church that exists to spread the hope of the Gospel to vulnerable women, children and families in Western New York.
SonRays Ministries provides a variety of pregnancy resources: unplanned pregnancy support, Christian childbirth classes, doula support, birth parent advocacy. As well as, post-abortion healing through a 10-week Biblical workshop. Every life is precious, and the SonRays Ministries mission is to repeatedly speak Christ’s love into the lives of those in need.
