For over two decades, Bob and Alice Wirt were an integral part of the work at the Center for Pregnancy. Alice volunteered as a client advocate for many years until her declining health made it impossible. Bob used his love for golf to spread the word about the Center for Pregnancy, and to raise support for the ministry. Since our first Golf Marathon in 2000, it has been our primary fundraiser. Over the course of the past 20 years, Bob raised nearly half a million dollars to benefit the Center. Because of his dedication and hard work, the Center for Pregnancy has been able to serve thousands of women and their families over the years.
After Alice passed away a few years ago, Bob continued to be a part of the ministry. He still golfed as much as his health would allow, and faithfully raised funds to support other golfers when he couldn't complete the entire 100 hole marathon. He would call or stop by the Center just to check in with us and say hello. Bob went home to be with the Lord over the summer. We will greatly miss his cheerful spirit and kind heart. This year, we pray that our marathon will honor his memory and carry on his legacy of love for the community.
