26 Feb On Your Marks… Relay starts Wednesday!
Starts on Wednesday (Feb 14th, 2018)! The sixth annual A-Cross America Relay for Pro-Life! This is also First Wednesday, so let’s all wear LIFE Runners jersey in public to celebrate the Relay kickoff. Have you registered to run or walk some 5K legs of the Relay (even in your own neighborhood)? Get on it fast, because you don’t want to miss out on being part of the largest Pro-Life Relay in the world! This Wednesday the Relay will kickoff at the Golden Gate Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Forks ND, and San Antonio TX – and all four arms will unite at the Relay finish line in Kansas City on Palm Sunday (Apr 9th). The 1,588 legs of 5K add up to 5,545 miles! Invite others by way of phone, email, text, social media, smoke signals. Get your church, friends, family, coworkers involved. And for those who don’t live near the Relay route, make a group pilgrimage to the route or complete 5K legs with family and friends in your own neighborhood. Register for your 5K legs today – run or walk part of the “Cruciform Route” – All In Christ for Pro-Life! RELAY CHECKLIST:
