Remembering the five Fairport teenagers who died just days after graduating from high school.

Bailey Goodman, Hannah Congdon, Meredith McClure, Sarah Monnat and Katie Shirley were all killed in a crash in Ontario County back in 2007. 

The annual Angel Walk is a celebration of the girls' lives. we spoke with one of the young girls' mothers. She told us it's still tough even after seven years, but it's the tight, close-knit community that's helped them get through.

Mother Diane McClure says, "This has always been a tight community, but it has been redefined the past seven years and I think that is the most important message that no matter how small the gesture or action it is valuable to the people who are grieving."

All the money raised goes to the Joey Fund - which benefits families in crisis.
