Letter: Walking for missing and murdered

A group of eight walkers from Manitoba will be in your community in the next few days or so.

Editor:

I wanted to let your community know that a group of eight walkers from Manitoba will be in your community in the next few days or so.

They are walking from Norway House Cree Nation, Man. (where they started on July 18, 2015) to Prince Rupert to draw attention to all missing and murdered.

I am sending this message on their behalf.

As they draw closer to the end of their journey, they are in need of monetary donations, as well as donations of gas, food, water, walking shoes, socks, outerwear and accommodations.

Anyone wanting to join them, for any distance, is also more then welcome.

I was able to spend eight hours walking with them when they left Winnipeg on Aug. 3 and it was a humbling experience.

If your community could do something to help these eight walkers on their journey, it would be greatly appreciated.

More information on the walk can be found on their event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/114014765605546/.
