The BMO Walk so Kids Can Talk for Kids Help Phone is taking place in 17 different cities across Canada including Toronto this weekend.

The Toronto walk will take place at Ashbridge’s Bay Park on Sunday, May 7, from 8 to 10 a.m.

The goal of the walk is to raise awareness and funds for the Kids Help Phone, which is Canada’s only 24/7 e-mental health service offering free talks to help and support young people across the country. Kids Help Phone offers a safe space for kids/teens to talk through phone and or text in any moment of crisis.

The walk on Sunday, May 7, at Ashbridge’s Bay Park is two hours long and will consist of a five-kilometre route that is family-friendly and pet-friendly.

More than 10,000 participants are scheduled to take part in the walk across Canada.
