On Saturday, Christendom College's pro-life student club, Shield of Roses, participated in the local Crisis Pregnancy Center's "Walk for Life" fundraiser in Front Royal, Va. More than 50 students and professors joined in the walk with over four hundred participants. Participants touted pro-life shirts and walked with songs and high spirits.

"I am really impressed at the number of students who came out for the walk," sophomore Mark Turner says. "It is an important witness to America, especially with the elections coming up so soon."

Turner is a member of the College's varsity soccer team, which participated in the walk as a team. The Walk for Life raised money for an ultrasound machine for the Pregnancy Center—a much-needed addition that will help the clinic reach out with greater impact to women in the local Front Royal area.
