San Francisco, Calif., Jan 27, 2015 / 05:06 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The eleventh annual Walk for Life West Coast broke its own records this year, drawing the largest crowd it has ever seen, as well as more press coverage than in previous years.
“We had by far the largest crowd we have ever had. The plaza was packed – it looked like a football stadium sized crowd,” Eva Muntean, Walk for Life co-founder and organizer, told CNA.
For the past eleven years, Walk for Life West Coast has gathered thousands of people to peacefully march in the name of life. This year, the San Francisco event was held on Jan. 24.
Compared to last year, Muntean believes that the 2015 event was “larger, and as hard as it is to believe, might have even been a bit more lively” than the year before, drawing a crowd of over 55,000 people.
“The youth are out in greater numbers than ever and are quite vocal about their pro-life values,” she went on to say.
