6th Annual MEF Walk-A-Thon is a great success!
The Merrillville Education Foundation sponsored our sixth Walk-A-Thon on October 7, 2023, at the Merrillville High School Soccer/Track and Field Area.
Many thanks to all who came out for the event on a beautiful and brisk fall morning! Everyone got some good exercise, many prizes were given out, and a fun time was had by all.
