05 Mar Over 50% filled! A-Cross America Relay for Pro-Life!
Thank you for being All In Christ for Pro-Life! We are halfway through the 40 day A-Cross America Relay for Pro-Life and have filled over 50% of the 5,359 miles (12 million steps), cheers! Please register to walk or run some of the remaining 5K legs, either on the course or remotely in your local area. Join for the finish line events in Kansas City from 9am to 4pm on Sun, Mar 25th. The Saint Pio Foundation built a special baton with a St. Pio relic (piece of clothing) for us to carry across the finish line. Registration and details at liferunners.org/across. #RememberTheUnborn
See Live Progress Map. The Relay kicked off on Feb 14th on the Golden Gate Bridge CA, Brooklyn Bridge NY, Grand Forks ND, and San Antonio TX. We are the light of truth as we “cross” our nation with the “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” message of hope. Runners from all across the US and around the world are covering the 5,359 miles in prayer as they run on the Relay course and remotely in their own cities. We’ve had remote participation in Singapore, Guam, Fiji Islands, Rome, and even along the Camino de Santiago, the Way of St. James, in Spain. Together we are the voice for the voiceless!
The south arm of the Relay kicked off in San Antonio and went by the Alamo to REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5.
Mary Claire Miller began the west arm at the Golden Gate Bridge, bringing Pro-Life truth to San Francisco.
LIFE Runner chapters from St. Cecilia NJ, Long Island NY and New York City kicked off the east arm at the Brooklyn Bridge and then did a prayer rally at Planned Parenthood.
