Liver Walkers

with Michael Radner of Soutlfel4 broth-
er of Gilda Radner, and Marcia
Gershenson of Birmingham at the Gilda's
Club Family Walk Sept. 13.

More than 1,000 walkers participat-
ed in the 10th annual Gilda's Club
Family Walk on Sept. 13. The walk
benefits the club started by eight
founding members who believed
strongly in the late comedienne
Gilda Radner's dream of providing a

Last year, when he discovered the
"Liver Walk," a 6K family walk in
Lower Huron Metropark in
Belleville, he made it his mission to
get people to participate, said Julie.
"We put together 'Team Felds,'
made T-shirts and gathered as many
friends and family as we could," she
Jeff made a decision to partici-
pate, arid walked half the course.
