Background: Soon before March for Life foundress Nellie Gray passed away in 2012, she asked LIFE Runners co-founder Dr. Pat Castle to host the inaugural March for Life 5K. The 2013 March for Life 5K was on 26 Jan at West Potomac Park with runners/walkers ages 5 to 75 from 30 states. The 2013 race was co-directed by Jeff Grabosky and Jeff Pauls, including a blessing by Fr. Frank Pavone and comments by March for Life president Jeanne Monahan (photos/articles). The Jan 2014 race was cancelled by the National Park Service because of snowstorm and rescheduled for 31 May 2014. The Jan 2015 race was fantastic. Read about Nellie Gray.
