UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The RiseUp Christian Coalition's Walk for Unity will end up at the Bald Knob Cross of Peace in Alto Pass on Saturday, April 20.
The coalition is a nonprofit organization that is currently forming. They say their goal is to reach, unite and build up Christians of all ages by building relationships with one another, their church, their community and their country.
The group began The Walk for Unity in Illinois on Good Friday at South Belloit, Ill. and will travel roughly about 373 miles to the Bald Knob Cross. Jeremy Leisky and JaCory Taylor will be carrying a cross down Illinois and the event will be open for other people to join in and carry the cross.
The walk will take around 20 days with breaks in between. It works by using two-person teams. One person carrying the cross and one in the chase vehicle.
Anyone interested in carrying the cross can contact them on their Facebook page or e-mail them at email@example.com.
