The Walk for Life West Coast celebrates 10 years of standing up for life in San Francisco with the Walk for Life West Coast Jan. 25 – and organizers expect more than 50,000 people to crowd Civic Center Plaza and walk down Market Street this year.

“The pro-life spirit is truly alive in San Francisco and the Walk for Life West Coast continues to be a wonderful way for those who care about women and their babies, born and unborn, to show that life is the only choice,” said Eva Muntean, co-chair of the Walk for Life.

The event begins with the rally at 12:30 p.m. and the walk down Market Street starts at 1:30 p.m. concluding with a celebration at Justin Herman Plaza near the Ferry Building.

To celebrate and promote this year’s walk, the Walk for Life has released a promotional 2 ½ minute video which can be seen at www.walkforlifewc.com.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone called the walk “a San Francisco tradition,” in his invitation to all priests of the archdiocese. Archbishop Cordileone will deliver the invocation for the walk at Civic Center Plaza. He has invited the priests and people of all the parishes and schools of the archdiocese to attend.
