Hundreds walk for Riley Hospital for Children

Posted: Updated:

About 250 people gathered on Saturday in Evansville's Washington Square Mall to support Riley Hospital for Children.

It was the 21st annual walk to support Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis and the Riley Deaconess Clinic in Evansville. 

The event was hosted by the Green River Kiwanis. Event chairman, Chuck Young, says over $20,000 was raised locally this year for Riley.

"We're trying to continue to grow it. It's an indoor walk for this purpose, that we kind of eliminate all the other walks or competition for them. So, we're bringing it indoors and unfortunately, we had a very beautiful day today, but we still had a good turnout," Young said.

Young says this is the second year the walk has been held indoors.
