The Victor Walk Movement rallies Canadians against childhood trauma, helps raise funds for new non-profit: Breaking Free Foundation
June 4, 2015 (Calgary, AB) – With 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys experiencing trauma, in various forms, before they are 18 years of age, it has become clear that Canadians must rally together to take a stand against childhood trauma. People in communities nation-wide will be doing just that on July 25, 2015, when they join NHL alumni and advocate, Theo Fleury for the second national Victor Walk movement.
The inaugural Victor Walk in 2013 was a huge success, Canada-wide, and now its back for an even bigger campaign. A national movement powered by an Orange Wave of Courage, the Victor Walk will see Fleury and other Victors and supporters, stand up and speak out, giving a voice to those who have been affected by trauma throughout their lifetimes. Supported by communities across the country, the Victor Walk will be recognized as a national movement and is hoped to change the way Canadians understand the effects of childhood trauma.
In addition to raising awareness, the Victor Walk Movement will also be supporting and raising funds for a new non-profit: Breaking Free Foundation, founded by Theo Fleury and other advocates. The mission of this new organization is “to provide survivors of traumatic life events with the treatment and support needed to reclaim their lives.”
Brought together by their incredible desire change, Victor Walks are being organized in communities and cities across Canada. To find out if there’s a Victor Walk in your community, or to find out how to start one, visit: www.victorwalk.com.
