Walk For Justice at Detroit Zoo raises funds for veterans

- Hundreds of people enjoyed the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, while helping out a good cause at the same time.

The weather could not have been better for this year's Walk for Justice in Royal Oak. The annual event raises money for the Salvation Army's William Booth Legal Aid Clinic, which provides guidance and counseling for military veterans and those who otherwise could not afford it.

Over the years, it's helped resolve about 20,000 legal issues.

"Each person ... they have a right to justice in our courts and it's imperative that we are able to do that in all three counties," said Fred Mester of the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic.

Last year the event raised $37,000 for the clinic.

"We just think it's a really cool organization," said Katie Murray, who participated in the event. "We've never been to the zoo before and we just thought it would be really nice to hang out with family and friends and spend a great day outside."
