ROYAL OAK — The Salvation Army’s 12th annual “Walk for Justice” will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 11, at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak.

The William Booth Legal Aid Clinic is the only Salvation Army free legal aid clinic in the world, and has been providing free legal services to those in need throughout metro Detroit for 30 years, according to a press release.

The clinic has since helped resolve 1,500 legal issues every year affecting low-income families and U.S. military veterans.

Along with exploring the zoo, the walk will include family-friendly activities. There will also be a silent auction for those in attendance. A “special prize” will be given to the walker with the highest pledge total.

Early registration for the event costs $40 for adults, and the cost will be $45 on the day of the walk. Children will be admitted for free and law students may register for $30. The registration fee includes zoo admission, parking, an event T-shirt, refreshments and entry into the door prize drawing.

Proceeds from the walk will go directly to the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic, according to a press release.
