Days until we Walk for Life on January 25, 2025
Some of our past heroes!

One of the regular features of the Walk is the annual presentation of the St. Gianna Molla award for Pro-Life Heroism. The award is named after the 20th century Italian wife, mother, and pediatrician Dr. Gianna Molla who chose to give birth rather than undergo a medical treatment that would result in the death of her unborn daughter. It is given to a person or group who have displayed unusual courage and fidelity to the pro-life cause. Past honorees include David Bereit, founder of 40 Days for Life, now in 1000 cities and 63 countries around the world; Joe Schieldler, ‘the Godfather of the Pro-Life Movement’; Walter Hoye, II, unjustly imprisoned for exercising his First Amendment rights; and Fr. John Malloy, first Chaplain of the Walk. This year’s surprise honoree, a nationally known figure, will not be announced until the presentation of the award. Be there or tune in to EWTN to see who it is!
