For the third year, a group of friends met up at the Edmonds Dick’s Drive-In to begin a 22-mile walk-a-thon that took them to all six Dick’s locations. This year’s walk — held Sunday — benefited local charities, and Larry Vogel was on hand to capture the action. You can read more background on the walk here.
