Together, walkers raised approximately $10,000 to support youth across Canada and ensure they never have to feel alone.

"It was amazing to see different pieces of the community come together with a united passion for supporting youth," says Beth McClelland, one of the organizers.

This year's walk included a visit from Roger the Dog of the Peterborough Petes, entertainment by the James Strath PS Drumline, and generous donations from Sobeys on Lansdowne, Boston Pizza, Nestle, Long & McQuade and Active Minds at Trent.

The Walk was also lucky to once again have support from BMO, Kal Tire and Bell Media.
