TORONTO, May 1, 2023 /CNW/ - Media are being asked to help get the word out to rally support and raise awareness for youth mental health from coast to coast to coast.
BMO Walk so Kids Can Talk for Kids Help Phone is taking place in 17 communities across the country to raise awareness and funds for Kids Help Phone to unlock the hope for young people to thrive in their world.
The five-kilometer walk is a family-friendly and pet-friendly event.
