The 41st annual Right to Life Walk is happening this weekend despite the pandemic. 

The walk is Saturday at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, and registration begins at 9 a.m. with the walk starting at 10 a.m. 

Stacey Davis, executive director for Right to Life of Owensboro, said each person walking must fill out a form with personal info as well as a  COVID-19 questionnaire for safety.

Additional safety measures are being added this year and there will be reminders to socially distance while gathering to register or purchase a T-shirt. The organization is also providing masks and hand sanitizer.

“We have a police escort down Frederica Street to the Plaza and back to the church for about a 3-mile walk,” she said. “This walk raises awareness for our mission to educate on the sanctity of life.”

In the past, the walk has attracted anywhere from 100-300 participants. Davis said with good weather in the forecast for the weekend, she is hoping for a good turnout. 

Davis said this event is one of their four fundraisers annually, but this year it is especially important for the organization because they have had to cancel a few events due to COVID-19.

“I hope everyone joins our walk and supports our pro-life mission,” she said.
