Maple Ridge Secondary School Circle of Indigenous Youth and Allies are inviting the community to participate in their first annual Walk Her Walk event, intended to raise awareness about the number of Indigenous women who go missing, many along the Highway of Tears, every year. The Highway of Tears (Hwy 16) is a 725km secluded highway between Prince George and Prince Rupert.
9:00 am – 5:00 pm
May 5, 2023
Maple Ridge Secondary School
21911-122nd Avenue, Maple Ridge
The goal of the Walk Her Walk event is for 1,800 people to walk laps of the Maple Ridge Secondary School track to ad up to the length of the Highway of Tears to honour these missing women. Participants are encouraged to wear red, as May 5 is also Red Dress Day – a day to honour the memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women across Turtle Island.
