RICHLAND, Wash.-- More than 25K raised for 'Walk for Life' event. More than 300 people showed up at the 23rd annual 'Walk for Life' event in Howard Amon Park in Richland. There were more than 33 different church organizations that participated.

The local non-profit Tri-Cities Pregnancy Network organized the event which helps women and infants. On Saturday they raised more than $25,000 to continue services. Some of the services include pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, counseling and helping pay for baby supplies.

Director Avonte Jackson says "we provide compassionate pregnancy support services to women. Especially to those who are dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. So we provide support to them through our prenatal time and all the way through the baby being two years of age."

Students at the Calvary Chapel in Tri-Cities raised more than $6,000 for the group. Some people shaved their heads as part of a bet to raise the money.
