Walk So Kids Can Talk

Toronto, Tuesday, May 1, 2018

On Sunday, May 6, join thousands of Canadians for the 17th annual Walk So Kids Can Talk. The 5 km walk takes place at 39 sites across Canada with fun activities for the whole family. It’s a great way to build community and enjoy a fun, family friendly experience outdoors while supporting an important cause.

The funds raised at the Walk So Kids Can Talk support Kids Help Phone, Canada's only national 24-hour, bilingual and anonymous phone and web counselling and referral service for children and youth to connect with a counselor whenever they want, however they want.

There is no registration fee to participate but the suggested fundraising minimum is $100 per person; you can register up until May 6. Please consider registering as an individual or a team with friends, family or co-workers, and help make a difference in a young person’s life.

“Kids Help Phone literally saved my life tonight. I was in desperate need of someone to talk to and it was there.” – Kids Help Phone service user

In 2017 the Walk raised $3.7 million for Kids Help Phone. All of the money raised goes toward ensuring Kids Help Phone can continue to provide its counselling service to young people in communities across Canada.

For more information about Kids Help Phone, including a new 24/7 Crisis text line, supported by Bell Let’s Talk, visit www.kidshelpphone.ca.
