Workers and volunteers with the Children's Home Society hit the road to raise money and awareness of the rising number of children in the Mountain State who don't have a place to call home.
It took the group three days to walk 65 miles from the Nicholas County Courthouse in Summersville to Charleston.
The group says West Virginia needs more emergency shelters for homeless children or those living in troubled households and this is just one way of getting the word out to residents of the state.
"The whole idea for the walk was to raise awareness because so many people in West Virginia are unaware of Children's Home Society of West Virginia and how great an organization they are and how much they care for children," walk organizer Bonnie Ward said.
The walk concluded Monday afternoon at the state Capitol.
