Boogie the Bridge supports local charities

People don't like to imagine homeless youth here in Kamloops, but it is a reality in the city. Over 26 hundred runners and walkers came out to raise money for two charities including one that supports homeless youth in the community as part of Boogie the Bridge.

More than 2,600 people came out yesterday in Kamloops to race in Boogie the Bridge. They were also there to raise money for two local charities - Crossing Bridges Outreach Program and A Way Home. A Way Home helps to provide support and housing for homeless youth in Kamloops.  As Daybreak's Jenifer Norwell learned, these charities form a big part of the race.
