Registration for Walk to Mary is being taken online only at walktomary.com. The registration fees are $25 for adults and $10 for students — children 4 and younger are free — and include a sandwich-style lunch box, a Walk to Mary T-shirt and a pilgrims packet full of pilgrimage souvenirs.
New this year is the “Walk with the Children.” Pilgrims can join the walk for the last 2 miles — geared to children, elderly and those who cannot walk long distances. The flat fee for families to participate is $25.
The registration deadline is April 27.
