“There’s been a lot of repeat people coming to the walk, we’ve created more teams, it’s great to see everyone come out. Once people get involved they keep doing it for years,” said Co-chair Jamie Heagy.

Music for the event was provided by local band Time Tested, featuring KDKA’s own Paul Martino on keyboard. Jon Burnett served as emcee.
