Dexter Village plans to hold a Wellness Walk Saturday, which has morphed into a fundraiser for the Dexter Relief Fund set up to benefit tornado victims.

The Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation will donate $20 to the relief fund for each adult walker who completes the walk on Saturday.

Walkers are asked to meet at 10 a.m. at the Dexter Library on Alpine Street. There are two routes, one that’s 2 miles and one that’s 3 miles.

Family, friends and even pets are welcome, according to information from the event.

The village also will be dedicating the new bridge that connects Westridge subdivision to the village that’s located behind the Dexter firehouse.

Probility Physical Therapy will be there to help everyone stretch out.

Will the walk be finished by Saturday? Sure doesn't look that way.

One would think spell check would be an appropriate investment for a "media outlet".

A typo in the headline has been corrected.


Wed, Mar 21, 2012 : 12:05 p.m. must be hiring editors as there doesn't seem to be one working at the moment. Every time I read it makes me miss real journalism more and more.
