SAN DIEGO — More than 2,000 people of diverse cultures and faiths are expected to attend the 10th annual San Diego Walk for Life on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022.
The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Waterfront Park in downtown San Diego. This year’s theme is “Celebrating All Stages of Life.”
The schedule includes a line-up of inspiring speakers. Shawn Carney, president and co-founder of 40 Days for Life, will deliver the keynote. Other speakers will include Bishop Robert McElroy; Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano; Dr. George Delgado, medical director of Culture of Life Family Services; and registered nurse Debbie Bradel.
This year’s event will also include live music by Santiago Fernández, one of the Catholic Church’s leading Spanish-language liturgical composers; pro-life and pro-family exhibitors; and raffles.
Between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., participants will walk a half-mile route around the San Diego County Administration Center, beginning at the corner of Harbor Drive and Grape Street, carrying pro-life signs and banners.
Last year, to slow the spread of COVID-19, the San Diego Walk for Life was held as a car caravan, which culminated a week of virtual workshops. An estimated 150 vehicles participated in the caravan, which looped around Waterfront Park. Previously, the event had been held every year in Balboa Park.
