Father Dwight started “the Southern Walk” in Los Angeles on Friday, May 22nd and will complete the walk across America when he arrives at the US Capitol in Washington, DC on August 15th. Crossroads also has a Canadian walk starting in Toronto on July 31st and ending in Ottowa at the Canadian Parliament on August 15th.
From the Pacific coast to the Atlantic, these simultaneous walks for life will cover over 11,000 miles, pass through 38 states, 2 provinces and thousands of towns and cities.
