"Walk For Warmth" generates $20,000 in donations

Posted:

The purpose was to warm homes, but the turnout warmed hearts.

Nearly 350 people participated in the February 7th "Walk For Warmth" in Rapid City.

The annual event generated more than $9,000 in donations.

Black Hills Power matched the amount which was presented to two local charities Tuesday.

The Salvation Army and Church Response received checks for $10,000 to help families with heating bills this winter.

As part of the "Walk For Warmth," this year's spirit award went to high school students from Partnership Rapid City, who dressed in full costume, encouraging others to give freely to those in need.
