Walkers stride though downtown to help needy

Posted:

Hundreds of people walked through downtown Rapid City to help others stay warm.
 
The weather held out long enough for the walkers of the 2nd Annual Walk for Warmth to stride through downtown Rapid City Saturday.

Money raised goes to the Salvation Army and Church Response to help pay heating bills for those who many have trouble.

Last year the event raised fifteen thousand dollars, this year they hope to beat that.
 
"Black Hills power will match donations dollar for dollar, the nice thing about this is, all the money stays local," says Sarah Folsland with Black Hills Power.
 
Organizers say they hope to raise $20,000 this year, people walked a 1.5 mile course through downtown.
