Winnipeg Send-off – Thursday, March 6th

It was a cold and snowy start to our 6km send-off that began at Canadian Mennonite University. After a prayer and commission, we began a local walk with a group of 15 students joined by a professor and a few others community members. We were very appreciative of this act of solidarity with the walkers and to honour the stories of residential school survivors. When we reached the edge of the city at the perimeter highway, the group parted ways with a blessing and goodbye. A number of the students who joined for the 6km walk will meet back up with us four walkers in Edmonton to attend the Truth and Reconciliation Commission event held on March
27-30th.
