Windspeaker Media, CFWE and 89.3 the Raven, are media sponsors of the 2022 Orange Shirt Day Run/Walk, Sept 30

 

89.3 The Raven & CFWE, Alberta's Best Country are media sponsor of the Run/Walk, Sept 30 at Kinsmen Park in Edmonton.

Run/Walk in support and awareness of those who did not survive the Residential school era and for those who did. This event aims to raise funds for the OrangeShirtDay.org and local grassroots movements including promoting and supporting Indigenous athletes. This will be a combination of pavement and trail run through the beautiful YEG river valley trails to Hawrelak Park and back and includes three distances of 5 & 10 km and a kids 2.15 km race at the same location.

Not seven years ago, the Truth and Reconciliation Committee of Canada had estimated that more than 4,100 Indigenous children have perished due to “disease or accident while attending a residential school.” Tragically, ongoing investigations have revealed thousands more unmarked gravesites near to, or on the grounds of Canada’s former residential schools.

Please join us again on September 30th in remembrance and to yell loudly that

EVERY CHILD MATTERS.

 
 
The day will begin with ceremony and words from our elders at Kinsmen Park at 3:00 pm and the run/walk will begin with the kids 2.15km at 4:00 pm followed by the 5 &10km. This will be a combination of pavement and trail run through the beautiful YEG river valley trails to Hawrelak Park and back and includes three distances of 5 & 10 km and a kids 2.15 km race at the same location.
