LIFE Runners jersey:  the Trinity is represented on the front.  The cross reminds us that we are All In Christ!  The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit bringing confidence, healing, peace… to end abortion.  Jer1:5 is God the Father encouraging us for our mission, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”  On the back is the message “REMEMBER The Unborn”, which we carry for the least of our brothers and sisters.  The jersey is blue, representing Mary and her yes to God who gives us life eternal.   

All In Christ for Pro-Life!

The Miraculous Encounter

St. Padre Pio is the LIFE Runners patron saint.  LIFE Runners founder Dr. Pat Castle encountered St. Pio during the last 10 minutes of the 2006 Pikes Peak Ascent race (newspaper, videoTV).  St. Pio took on suffering to reduce the suffering of others.  St. Pio’s intercessory prayers prevent and heal abortion wounds.  LIFE Runners co-directed the 2017 St. Pio Relay for Pro-Life in Italy.  St. Padre Pio prayed, “My past, O Lord, to Your mercy; my present, to Your love; my future, to Your providence.”

Creed

We believe in the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death.
* We run as a Prayer, to defend children in the womb, so that they may be born and united with our Christian community.
* We run to build Endurance, for the race is long and we must keep our eyes fixed on You Lord.
* We run for Awareness, so our culture will view all human life as a reflection of Your glory Lord.
* We run for Charity, to provide support for mothers and fathers tempted to abort their child, and healing support for post-abortion women, men and families.
* We run to End abortion, for Christ died so that all may live.
Guard us all, born and unborn, with Your PEACE, Lord. For in You, life is victorious. We pray and run in Your name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
