This walk combines outdoor walking, with a focus on being grateful for the small things in our lives as well as creating social connections. It promotes respectful relationships and says No to Domestic Violence. This walk offers victims, survivors, family and friends, and community members a group to connect with and to join in an inexpensive form of physical activity in a safe and supportive environment. A range of people attend the walks, which creates a great support network.
