Service Opportunities in 2021

Walk for Life 2021

Join our next all-church service project as we support RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics! They are adding two clinic locations and expanding their medical service offerings to include prenatal and well woman care, so they need our help to serve Bay Area women and families. You can participate in 3 ways:

  1. Walk with Team Bridges in the virtual Walk for Life on March 13! Register to walk/run HERE by clicking on the “My Team” tab and then the “Join This Team” button at the top of the tab. Due to COVID restrictions, we cannot meet in the regional Walk for Life setting, so you get to choose whether you prefer to walk/run with Team Bridges on the BCC campus (masked and distanced) or as an individual at your own location. We will meet in the BCC parking lot, watch the virtual launch from RealOptions (scheduled for 8:45AM), and walk/run at 9:00AM. We will have maps for the route (roughly 3K) and pray as we go.
  2. Donate to support Team Bridges in the Walk for Life and help us reach our goal of raising $12,000! Last year our goal was $7,200 and we raised $11,265.91. We can do it again—together! Visit the fundraising page HERE or write a check payable to RealOptions with “Team BCC-Los Altos” in the memo field, then mail it to Daryl Winslow: 1560 Ashcroft Way, Sunnyvale, CA 94087. (Please note that there is a processing fee charged with donations made via the Team Bridges FundEasy web page.)
  3. Donate to directly support RealOptions via our BCC giving web page. Click HERE and select “Short Term Projects” and then “RealOptions/Walk for Life” from the drop-down menus.

Funds raised will be used to purchase these much-needed items for RealOptions clinics:

2 exam lights ($500 each) = $1,000
4 iPads for telehealth RN’s ($350 each) = $1400
Move plumbing and install new sink/counter in Redwood City clinic = $6000
Replace sinks/counters in 2 exam rooms in Oakland clinic = $3000
Exit signs for all 5 clinics = $500

TOTAL OF ALL NEEDS ABOVE = $11,900
