You will receive route/bus instructions on the day of the walk. Just make sure you get to OLOP before the bus leaves and that you plan to return on the bus on time. Bring comfortable walking shoes, a bagged lunch, and bottled water. We walk rain or shine, so check weather conditions to plan accordingly. Don’t worry – even the one year it rained buckets, it was a great experience.
This year we will be joined by internationally known pro-life and pro-chastity speaker Patricia Sandoval, who will share her gripping story of the journey from pain and fear to hope and life; by the Rev. Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, whose unjust imprisonment for exercising his First Amendment rights made him a worldwide hero to the pro-life movement; and by Fr. Shenan Boquet, President of Human Life International, who travels the world spreading the Gospel of Life.
And we want to be joined by YOU! Be there with your friends, your families, and your allies! Be there for the littlest among us! Be there for LIFE!
