“This walk is to finish Lisa’s walk that she didn’t get a chance to finish, and to take back our park, take back our trails,” Angela Derby told the station.
“People were talking about how afraid they were,” Derby said. “And being that this is the one thing that we can do during this pandemic, is get out and exercise in broad daylight, and to have that taken away was something that we weren’t going to stand for.”
