Grant County residents will have a chance to put their money where their feet are this Saturday during the 9th annual “Walk A Mile In My Shoes” event at the Grant County Rescue Mission.
Participants walk one mile to raise money for the Rescue Mission to help fund its activities and programs. Organizer Deb Ballard says registration so far has been down this year, but she blames that on the weather.
Those planning to walk are to collect donations and turn them in at the event.
The Walk-A-Mile event begins with an opening ceremony Saturday at 10 at the Grant County Family Y-M-C-A, and then walk the one mile to the Rescue Mission and back to the Y. A dinner will be served to participants after the walk.
