HARRISONBURG, Va. -- People will be hitting the streets of Harrisonburg walking for chocolate and it's also a chance for them to support the Collins Center.

The Collins Center promotes the prevention of child sexual abuse and treatment for sexual assaults.

This is the third year that people will be out on Main street for the chocolate walk.

Fouteen downtown businesses are involved with this and it's all possible thanks to donated chocolate.

Pastor Amanda Garbor, who also serves on the Collins Center's board, said that this walk is a great way to raise money with the help of local businesses.

Garbor said lines were out the door at Yellow Button in 2012,so stores are really expecting crowds Friday night.

Businesses involved have a goal to raise anywhere from $3,500 to $4000.

It's ten dollars to buy a ticket for the walk, and you can buy them at the door or online.

Garbor said every penny from the ticket goes toward helping the cause.

"So we think a way we can offer them a gift is to say hey we believe in you I mean we see what you're doing and we want the community to know you're here....families who have experienced such hope and healing because of the Collins Center."

Tickets are available online, and there is a link to the Chocolate Walk under WHSV's Find It tab.

The event starts at 5 p.m. and lasts until 7 p.m..

Organizers expect that at least 250 people to be involved.
