Canadian Walk for Veterans
The first annual "Canadian Walk for Veterans" is today in Victoria and six other major cities across the Country.
The goal of the Canadian Walk for Veterans is to unite individual veterans across Canada, giving them a powerful voice to inspire and promote ongoing advocacy that significantly influences the policies, benefits and actions that shape and impact our veterans’ destinies. The ultimate goal is that the annual event will take place in every major city across the country for generations to come. Last year the "Walk for Veterans" was held in Central Park, Burnaby with over 200 participants. This year, the walk has expanded to Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa, Kingston, Fredericton and St. John.
In Victoria the walk starts at 9:30am at Clover Point. A national broadcast of the walk from all seven cities will also be streamed live at canadianwalkforveterans.ca/live
