SPRING GARDEN TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Walkers in York County laced up their sneakers to help fight hunger in their community.

Cloudy skies and rain didn't keep people from coming out for the annual "Walkathon" hosted by the Jewish Family Services of York. The event kicked off at Indian Rock Elementary school in Spring Garden Township, and folks walked five miles through the York Rail Trail.

The fundraiser supports the Northeast Neighborhood Food Bank.

"It was fun with the rain," walker, Landon Bowie said, "I took off my jacket a couple times because it's still fun to be outside, you know, rain or not. I'm happy that people get fed  properly and that they don't have to be hungry."

The Walkathon is in its 15th year.
