Walk for kids in our communities

Walk so Kids Can Talk is also a fun opportunity to engage our colleagues, families, friends and customers in support of Kids Help Phone.

The annual event focuses on raising awareness of the issues facing children and youth, and ensuring that hundreds of thousands of young people across the country continue to have access to the crucial counselling resources provided by Kids Help Phone. Every dollar we raise provides much needed help for a young person who turns to Kids Help Phone for life-changing – and sometimes even life-saving – help.

9,154 BMO employees, their family members and friends participated in the Walk So Kids Can Talk, raising $1.9 million in 2019.
