Money raised during the walk will be used to sponsor Korye Dance Theatre, a drum and dance cultural education group from Ghana, West Africa. The group will participate in educational outreach programs at Michigan schools later this year.
Korye Dance Theatre also is working to create an interactive art installation for the 2011 Art Prize in Grand Rapids.
Mackey, Tidball and Collins said they did a lot of walking to prepare for the fundraiser, which will have them covering 25 to 30 miles each day.
