Money raised will be counted when the college re-opens next week after its half-term break.
Paul Whitehouse, chairman of Sidmouth Youth Trust, and its secretary David Richards, talked to students before the walk about the Trust's work to encourage more "community cohesion" between the town's teenagers and older residents, including helping provide a youth caf� at the Esplanade shelters.
The circular route took in The Byes, Esplanade, Peak Hill and Muttersmoor, before reaching Northmostown near Newton Poppleford, Colaton Raleigh and back up to Passiford Lane and returning to the college.
