in support of War Child Canada
The Laura Secord Walk 2019 took place on June 22nd, 2019, and raised $10,000 for War Child Canada! Thanks to all who participated, donated, and volunteered to make this event a resounding success!
“This is an appropriate way to honour Laura Secord’s legacy and bravery. This year, let’s follow in her footsteps to raise awareness and opportunities for women and children who are victims of war.”
– Valerie Pringle, FLS Honourary Chair / Ontario Chair, Trans Canada Trail Foundation Board
Each year in June, the Friends of Laura Secord host the Laura Secord Walk along the Laura Secord Legacy Trail from Queenston to Thorold. It’s an annual event that recreates her heroic 32 km journey to warn the British of an impending American invasion. Since its inception, thousands of people have walked all or part of the trail to commemorate her legacy.
This year, we plan to make Laura’s walk even more meaningful. The Laura Secord Walk 2019 will support War Child Canada in their efforts to help thousands of women and children in war-affected areas, through the generational impacts of education, training, and justice.
