09 Dec witness for 70,000 in Memphis!

St. Jude Memphis Marathon witness! Big “REMEMBER The Unborn” banner and jerseys at the Expo, starting line, and finish line seen by 20,000 participants and 50,000 spectators. 50 LIFE Runners walked, ran, cheered in the 5K, 10K, half, full marathon. We registered 35 new teammates at the Expo, and Dr. Pat spoke with 400 students at 3 schools (K to 8th). Bishop Talley and the Knights were fantastic hosts for our pre-race Mass and meal. Our national chaplain Bishop Paprocki spoke, blessed the team, and raced with us. Join teammates for our 2023 race retreat weekend in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  All In Christ for Pro-Life!

Teammates at St. Jude Marathon Expo where 20,000 participants (& guests) encountered our “REMEMBER The Unborn” witness.  
Most of the 20,000 participants (and guests) at the St. Jude Marathon Expo were encouraged by our witness.  Because some hated our message, a black screen was placed behind our banner.   
Lilly and Boston passed out “REMEMBER The Unborn” stickers to hundreds of participants until security told them to stop.
