CTV Atlantic is once again participating in the Walk so Kids Can Talk.

It is a fun and inspirational 5K walk that happens in communities across the country – all to raise money for Kids Help Phone.

Held on the first Sunday in May since 2002, the Walk is Canada’s largest fundraiser for child and youth mental health and well-being and kicks off Mental Health Week in Canada each year.

This year, get in on the action by posting your Hero Selfie! Visit the Walk website and print a hero mask, then snap a selfie and share it on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to tag your photo with #BeAHero.

The Walk is Kids Help Phone’s largest fundraising event of the year and raises a significant portion of the revenue needed to keep Kids Help Phone’s day and night counselling service available.

Kids Help Phone is a free, anonymous and professional counselling service supporting the mental and emotional well-being of the 6.5 million kids across Canada ages five to 20.

Big or small concerns, 24/7, 365 days a year, Kids Help Phone is a lifeline, available whenever, wherever, and however kids need it most, whether they have questions about dating or friendships, are experiencing school stress, are dealing with pressure, or are coping with a mental health concern such as anxiety or depression.

No matter the question, Kid Help Phone is always there.
