Centraide kicked off its annual campaign to fight poverty and social exclusion by walking from Place du Canada up Rene-Levesque Blvd. eventually ending at the Place des Festivals.

The march will launch Centraide's annual fundraising campaign #unignorable, which aims to raise awareness about school dropouts, food insecurity, social isolation and homelessness.

The campaign runs to the end of Decemeber.
