On July 29, Pastor Anthony Pelegrino, who heads up Impact Ministries in Maywood, led around two dozen people on a prayer walk along the Prairie Path, from 17th Ave. to 11th Ave. and back.
The walk through Maywood was more than a demonstration for the 42-year-old resident of Downers Grove.
“I used to buy drugs out here,” Pelegrino said while standing on a plot of grass where the path meets the concrete road at 17th Ave., near Madison St.
