Participants will join the ranks of more than five million people who have participated in the event over the last two decades.
Lynn Blackledge, coordinator of the Crop Walk for St. Armands Key Lutheran Church, encourages walkers of all ages to participate.
“Weelchairs, strollers and wagons to pull youngsters are always welcome,” says Blackledge.
