'Friends of the Poor Walk' in Arlington Sept. 29

ARLINGTON — The "Friends of the Poor Walk" will start at Haller Park, proceed through Olympic Avenue, Legion Park and the Centennial Trail, and conclude at the Arlington Community Food Bank at the Arlington Municipal Airport on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Registration will kick off at 9:45 a.m. for the walk starting at 10 a.m. to help benefit the poor in the Arlington area.
