Annual "Cross Walk" held in Alto Pass

ALTO PASS, IL (KFVS) - The Bald Knob Cross of Peace held the 4th Annual "Cross Walk" Saturday in Alto Pass, Illinois.

The walk was a fundraiser used to re-light the Bald Knob Cross.

Renovations on Bald Knob Cross are entering into the final phase as the current board works on lighting and a prayer garden

In order to get the job done though they still need to raise more money.

For the fourth straight year hundreds of people from across the region came out to do their part today.

The drawings for both the prayer garden and new lights at the cross are complete.

Now all the board has to do is find an affordable company to provide the lights and finish up the work at the cross.

The $10 registration included wristbands and a sport water bottle. Participants were able to enjoy the Fall colors during the walk.

The length of the walk was estimated to be around 5 miles, with shorter distances available.
