Join Edgecliff neighbors in walk

The Spokesman-Review

The Edgecliff neighborhood will hold its eighth annual Walk for Success Saturday.

Each year, residents march through the streets for about a mile, or 12 blocks, to show they are united in the fight against crime and poverty. Edgecliff is a low-income neighborhood near the western edge of Spokane Valley.

The community has a federal grant – Weed and Seed – to help get rid of crime and to start programs for neighborhood children and adults.

Children under 15 who participate will receive a free T-shirt. The T-shirt pickup will be from 9:30 to 9:45 a.m. The walk starts at 10 a.m. at Sixth Avenue and Park Road.

Hot dogs, chips and pop will be available for $2 after the walk. Free games, a raffle and live music are among the activities planned after the stroll through the Edgecliff neighborhood.
