Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Rescue Mission is hosting its annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes fundraiser on Saturday, February 9.

There will be walks in Binghamton, Ithaca, Auburn and Syracuse.

In Binghamton, the walk is from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. and it starts and ends at the Grace Baptist Church Activity Center at 197 Robinson Street.

The walk includes one mile and three mile walks. After the walk, there will be hot beverages, snacks and raffles.
