Ridgefielders Joanna Vill and Kerryn King are hosting a one-mile charity walk through the village, Saturday April 25, to raise money to build a school in Africa.
The event is sponsored by the Take the Walk organization, which is supported by Ms. Vill’s and Ms. King’s favorite band, Hanson.
Take the Walk donates $1 for every person who participates in walks to benefit needy areas in Africa. Ms. Vill and Ms. King have chosen specifically to support the building of a new school.
Taking the one-mile walk is free — the organizers only ask for participants to sign their names on a roster so the list can be sent to Take the Walk.
