The Married 4 Life Walk is an iniatiative of Healing Hearts Healing Homes, Inc 501(c)(3) which was started by Founders Coach Martez & Woodrina Layton in 2016. Ronnie and Shamari DeVoe serve as Senior Marriage Ambassadors, Vision Partners and Executive Board Members. The goal of the organization is to use this initiative to strengthen marriages and save families. In addition, the aim is to bring awareness to the importance of professional marriage coaching and counseling. All donations are appreciated and will be used to support the national movement to strengthen marriages.
The mission of the Married 4 Life Walk (M4LW) is to reinforce the principle of “Walking in Unity." The purpose of this 5K walk is to encourage couples to connect, walk, and celebrate with other like-minded couples who are committed to stronger and healthier marriages. This experience will serve as a lifetime reminder for couples to take the time to slow down, hold hands, walk together, and remember that there is nothing they will **** in life or their marriage that cannot be conquered or overcome together as one. The walk event will be hosted by one of Chicago's Power Couple Maze Jackson & Kari Steele along with Marriage Ambassadors Coach Martez & Woodrina Layton and Ronnie & Shamari DeVoe and will be a fun-filled morning of love, spiritual bonding, and unyielding unity in which couples will leave the experience empowered to continue to fight for their marriage.
Couples in attendance at the Married 4 Life Walk can expect:
To Connect and create a deeper bond with their spouses - This hand-in-hand walk is a simple but powerful reminder that regardless of what storms we ****, we will hold on to each other and never let go.
To Celebrate with other couples - We've all experienced struggles in our lives and marriages. Couples will walk together, encouraging each other to hold on through challenges.
To Stand with others - There is power in community! Join with others who are also committed to stronger and healthier marriages.
The Couples Mixer & Love Celebration is an evening event after the Married 4 Life Walk, which allows couples to celebrate their love for one another after reaffirming their commitment to "Never Let Go Of The Hand You Are Holding."
