About the Walk

My team and I are so encouraged by the thousands of messages from people across Canada about the Victor Walk. We know we’ve hit a nerve ~ people want to better protect our children from abusers, greater national awareness about the epidemic of childhood trauma and much more access to funding for those groups and organizations who provide healing for victims, survivors, Victors and Advocates.

Our first Victor Walk in 2013, was a huge success nationwide, and since then we have been working to keep the momentum high with the community we’ve built up together. This year, our team will be walking an extended route for five days from Edmonton to Calgary, to bring a very bright spotlight on the horrors of childhood trauma. Eight million Canadians have suffered from shame and pain of childhood trauma long enough. 

The exact details of the route will be released soon, but here’s where the 2015 Victor Walk Tour will be heading and when:

  • July 23: Red Deer, Downtown Arena at 10 am
