Local Victor Walk rallies residents to raise awareness and speak out against childhood trauma.
July 20th, Medicine Hat, AB – With 1 in 2 girls and 1 in 3 boys experiencing an unwanted traumatic event before they are 18 years of age , it has become clear that Canadians must rally together to take a stand against childhood trauma. Residents of Medicine Hat will be doing just that on July 20, 2018, when they join NHL Super Star and Child Advocate, Theo Fleury in the Victor Walk movement.
A national movement powered by an Orange Wave of Courage, the Victor Walk will see Fleury giving a voice to those who have been affected by trauma throughout their lifetimes. Supported by communities across the country, this Victor Walk is recognized as a national movement and hopes to change the way Canadians understand the effects of childhood trauma.
Medicine Hat residents will be gathering at Riverside Veterans Memorial Park to support and create awareness on how childhood trauma has affected and impacted their lives. Brought together by their incredible desire for change, members of the community will walk from Riverside Veterans Memorial Park over Maple Avenue and Finlay Bridges and back, in hopes of raising awareness.
Those unable to attend Medicine Hat’s Victor Walk who still wish to support the movement are asked to visit www.victorwalk.com. Here, Canadians can learn more about the Victor Walk and how they can become involved.
