People come from all over to the Walk for Life West Coast: Europe, Africa, Oklahoma, San Francisco! But probably no one regularly comes from further away than LIFE Runner Karen Patnaude! Karen comes 5,436 miles–all the way from Fiji! This will be Karen’s fourth straight Walk for Life West Coast. But, as Karen says of the long trip: “It’s totally worth it!”
Karen is part of the LIFE Runners, the worldwide Pro-Life Team, who will once again be joining us at the Walk. There are over 10,000 LIFE Runners ages .01 to 101 in 50 states and 35 nations. You can always recognize them by their big blue “REMEMBER The Unborn” banner. And this year they will have one in Spanish: “RECUERA a los no nacidos”
LIFE Runners president and founder Dr. Pat Castle will be with us too and will be speaking at these Walk-related events:
* StandUp4Life Rally and Walk: 12pm, Jan 25th, Oakland City Hall.
* Youth Rally for Life, Our Lady of Peace Church: 6:30pm, Jan 25th, Santa Clara.
* Star of the Sea Church: 7:30pm, Jan 26th, San Francisco. “Meeting St. Pio, preventing & healing abortion.”
The LIFE Runners are really something: Check out their Facebook page to get a feel for their worldwide presence!
ALL in Christ for Pro-Life!
