Starting on Wednesday several churches will be taking part in a challenge called Walk to the Cross.

Participants will walk, run, bike or do some form of exercise that will amount to 12,200 miles, the distance from Wapakoneta to Jerusalem and back.

The challenge is focused on spiritual and physical discipline during Lent, a time in which Christians are expected to give up something or take on a challenge.

Members will report their activity to Foster. Accumulated miles will be reported at the Lenten Services to be held each Wednesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
