            Providing an extra boost to the walk’s fund-raising efforts this year were local “celebrity walkers,” including Assemblyman Brian Kolb, Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero and Supervisor Ted Fafinski of Farmington. Thompson Health is grateful to these individuals and all of this year’s sponsors and participants.
