Marion Walk-A-Mile Event Huge Success Saturday

More than 500 people made Saturday’s Walk-A-Mile In My Shoes Event for the Grant County Rescue Mission a huge success.

The One-mile walk in cold winter conditions raised more than 27-thousand dollars for the Grant County Rescue Mission.  It’s the Mission’s largest annual fundraising event and is held purposely in February to demonstrate the conditions that the homeless face during an Indiana winter.

In 2017, the Rescue Mission housed people for nearly 15-thousand overnight stays and served more than 57-thousand hot meals during the year.
