Running Pro-Life!

By Maria Vitale, Education Director

Donald Stevens is a man with a mission–to encourage runners to show their pro-life
allegiance. Stevens is behind a website which asks runners to wear a pro-life t-shirt
when participating in 10Ks and other running events.
"Marathons, triathlons, sprints and 10k races collect committed participants and
enthusiastic crowds of spectators. I have run with a PROLIFE shirt and I have
been amazed at the encouraging response from the crowd. When someone yells ‘Go
PROLIFE’ it gives you a shot of adrenalin," Stevens said.
"It would be good to have as many runners as possible across the country wear a
PROLIFE shirt during their event. It would also be great to compile list of all
participants and their event for this website so that others would be encouraged
to not be silent and dedicate their event to PROLIFE. I have worn the shirt in
all five majors; New York, Boston, Chicago, Berlin and London. The response was
uplifting and I invite you to participate," he added.
Runners interested in taking part in this worthwhile project can go to
and find out how they can help out.
We know that the effort to reverse Roe v. Wade is a marathon. Running "pro-life"
may be just one more way to get America across the finish line.
