Since 1985, Alternatives Medical Clinic, formerly Alternatives Women’s Center, has been helping women and men facing unplanned pregnancies or making sexual health choices by offering free medical and educational services.
Each year the clinic hosts a Walk & 5K Fun Run for Life to raise money for the patients it serves. The money raised allows the clinic to continue to provide STD testing, pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, education courses, material resources, and scholarship opportunities, all for free.
This year, they are expecting 400 runners and walkers from North County to rally together to support the patients of AMC. Their fundraising goal is $100,000. The annual event will take place March 7, 2020 at Kit Carson Park, Escondido. The 5K begins at 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 9 a.m. For additional information about the event, visit www.amc-ca.org.
