Walkers raise more than $30,000 for charities
Walkers raised more than $30,000 for charity at a single event last month.
A total of 1,235 people walked five kilometres on behalf of charities representing myriad causes.
The $33,740 raised and the 118 charities that benefitted represented all-time highs for the Argus Walks the Walk with the Centre on Philanthropy, now in its fourth year.
Argus CEO Alison Hill said: Argus Walks the Walk touches charities all over the Island. It is also a great event for mobilising members of the public to give something back to the community and generate positivity in Bermuda.
Participants chose a specific charity to receive their entry fees, $5 of which was donated to www.volunteer.bm, a website run by the Centre on Philanthropy.
The following charities generated the most support during the February 24 event:
- PALS had 63 walkers
