On September 20th, 2015, people from across Canada participated in the Walk Across Canada to raise awareness for eating disorders. The walk is in commemoration of a young woman named Renata whose eating disorder claimed her life in 2005.
People gathered to walk in Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, New York, and British Columbia. Members of the Riverwalk community participated and showed their support by walking in King City, Orangeville, Stouffville, Toronto, New York, and Whistler BC.
Check out the photos from the Walk Across Canada! You might see some familiar faces!
