The CSC brings together several faith-based organizations in New Brighton, Mounds View, North Oaks, Shoreview, and Arden Hills to assist those in need to prevent homelessness, solve financial crises and provide long-term relationships.

In total, Pilgrim House had 18 walkers, 49.5 miles walked, and 3 door prize winners for this important yearly fundraiser. Each mile walked earned $10.00 for the CSC. Pictured at right is Mary Carlson, working the registration table.

Total numbers—482 walkers, 936 miles, Donations $12,826.

Thanks PH Volunteers and walkers!
