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.
