[Updated with photos] Despite the less than inviting weather conditions, the streets of Hamilton are packed as the “Walk the Walk” gets underway this morning [Feb 24].
The Centre on Philanthropy and the Argus Group are hosting the 5K charity walk, which allows participants to choose which charity receives their entry fee as a donation. The walk begins and finishes on Wesley Street in Hamilton in front of the Argus and Centre on Philanthropy offices. We will update with a full photo gallery of the event once it is completed.
