Some can talk the talk, but can they walk the walk?
Dozens of people walked and ran at Island Park in Elkhart for the seventh annual “Walk the Walk” and 5K fundraiser on Sunday.
The SPA Women’s Ministry hosted the event and added a “fun run” this year. The goal was to raise money to improve the lifestyle and quality of life for women who have been struggling with choices that led them down a wrong path.
“(For) so many women, (the) only fun they've ever seen has been negative in the bars or using drugs and even abusive relationships,” said event coordinator Sandy Bontrager. “They can’t have a holiday without drinking and fighting this. We're showing them how much fun you can have with just a walk in the park.”
The organization is a faith-based home that offers women a safe environment.
