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 pedophiles, greater national awareness about the epidemic of child sexual abuse and much more access to funding for those groups and organizations who provide healing for victims, survivors, Victors and Advocates.
Walking from Toronto to Ottawa will bring a very bright spotlight on the horrors of child sexual abuse. Eight million Canadians have suffered from shame and pain of child sexual abuse long enough.
The exact details of the route have been determined, we know we will be starting on May 14 at the Child Abuse Monument in Toronto, and will end on the steps of Parliament around 2:00 pm on May 23. This walk will be in excess of 450 kms and spanning 10 days. It will not be easy. My team and I are in training, both physically and mentally.
We will be starting at the Child Abuse Monument in Toronto at 8:00 am. The Monument is located at 274 Rhodes Ave, near the Glen Rhodes United Church.

There are many of you who have expressed interest in joining the 10 day walk, but unfortunately because of safety issues that is not possible. My team is quite small, and we are only accounting for our needs during the walk – logistically that is all that we can do at this point.
We encourage you to join your own community walk, or if you live along the route that we are walking, meet us during the walk to cheer us on. We invite you to join us on Parliament steps on May 23rd, and if you’re unable to come to Ottawa please click here to find out how you can organize a Victor Walk in your area, and be a part of one of the greatest teams ever assembled to make a difference on behalf of childhood sexual abuse. If you live along the route between Toronto and Ottawa we hope to see you out there, lining the streets and making noise. Raising awareness won’t be possible without your support.
