New Brighton residents Diana Becker (left) and Cathy Boehm were all smiles despite the rain at the Community Support Center’s annual “Walk a Mile” fundraiser on Sunday, July 28. Fellow New Brighton local John Lundgren played baritone horn at the event, which took place in Silver View Park in Mounds View.

Despite the rain, organizer Iris McGinnis reported that over 300 people came out to the event. Participants walked 600 miles in total and raised over $10,000 in support of the local nonprofit, which provides immediate assistance and long-term guidance for residents facing evictions and power shut-offs.
