School groups are also participating, with Berkeley Institute raising $4850, Sandy’s Secondary Middle raising $2316 and the team from Mount St. Agnes raising $2112.

There is even some political unity being shown, with the Health Minister’s pledging page showing a donation from UBP MP Patricia Gordon Pamplin who said, “Happy to donate part of my parliamentary salary to a charitable cause. Best wishes with the walk.”

Chuck Morgan has received over $2,500 in pledges so far, and his personal pledge was that he will do the end-to-end in a full sabertooth tiger costume.
