    Camden County officials estimate 80-100K visitors will be making the walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge the weekend the Pope visits Philadelphia to see the Pontiff deliver the World Meeting of Families Mass on Sept. 27. (Published Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015)

    Over a month before the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia, NBC10’s Matt DeLucia embarked on a four mile-long walk from Camden to Philadelphia Thursday morning.

    DeLucia started at the base of the Ben Franklin Bridge in Camden and walked to the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philly.

    An estimated 80,000 to 100,000 people will make the same walk over the bridge to see Pope Francis next month.
