Although the group was small, the energy was full speed ahead as the participants headed on a four-kilometre trek through several roads in the town.
Mayor Barry Dooley led the charge, following behind a fire truck. A separate fire truck was behind the group, ensuring safety on the roads.
Coun. Kelly Loch and local resident Beulah Layden were all smiles as the group headed up Route 70, before taking a turn at Bottom Road. They looped around to Church Road then to Gully's Path, catching the eye of everyone on the street.
Coun. Aubrey Rose, Deputy Mayor Sharon Snooks, Coun. Frankie Antle, town manager Shelly Butt, Shelly's husband Trevor Butt and local firefighter Terri Lynn Layden also took part in the walk.
When they were done, a snack of fruit cups, granola bars and Gatorade awaited them.
The total amount raised will be calculated at the end of the month, when all funding has been received.
Other communities in the province are set to have Mayor's March events tonight (June 24). The exception is Carbonear, which holds the biggest Mayor's Walk in the province in October to commemorate the late Claude Garland, a former mayor who died suddenly in October 2004.
