"We have really enjoyed taking this Challenge. We are in our 60s and have five grandchildren so this was a fun family experience. I was born in Indianapolis and grew up using the City parks—what memories this provided me! My husband lived in LaGrange, so he went to neighborhoods he hadn't seen before. This was a lot of fun!" said Waureen Bontrager from Indianapolis.
