Walk for Life

In many corners of our society, what it means to respect a human life from their earliest moments to their natural end is being redefined. Sadly, the value of a person is increasingly reduced to their ability and perceived independence, not as a natural right.

As a result, the lives of unborn children, pregnant women & mothers, orphans, the terminally ill, the disabled and our dependent elderly population are often devalued or threatened.

From the first to the last, we walk to protect every step of a life.
