Local matching money was gifted to those charities Thursday.

“Without it - lots of kids, lots of families wouldn’t be able to be taken of in the way that they are,” Event Coordinator Paul Watzlavik said. “So, it directly impacts the ones that need it most.”

This year’s walk featured both in-person and virtual participants.
