Youth and Stars Success Walk will raise awareness of the need to provide opportunities and services for youth and will showcase Kitchener on the local and national stage. During the 4k walk, youth of all ages, cultures and abilities will connect with a variety of business leaders, celebrities and community organizations who will provide the advice and tools needed to increase skill levels and self-confidence and will end with a celebration and concert at City Hall. Not only will the Youth and Stars Success Walk encourage tourism, it will also promote our philosophy and commitment to the health, education, and well-being of our youth.Berry VrbanovicMayor, City of Kitchener
