2009 Walk for Youth and Free Skate

Thirteen groups of walkers representing youth sports teams, school groups and choirs raised over $5500 at the annual Optimist Walk for Youth. The average earned per group was over $400 with some groups raising as much as $1000. The Coquitlam Optimist Club set up the 5-km walking course, furnished pledge forms and signs and served hot dogs and drinks to the walkers.

Meanwhile, a few hundred children enjoyed an afternoon of skating courtesy of the Optimist Club. The skaters contributed seven boxes of food for Share's Food Bank.
