On May 3rd, the senior girls participated in a walk-a-thon to support Care Canada’s Walk in Her Shoes campaign.
Girls collected pledges in advance, and on the day of the walk they were invited to dress in something that would reflect their cultural heritage.
The goal was to walk 6 kms, as many women do on a daily basis to get water, food, wood, etc… in order to raise awareness and money for women and girls in developing countries.
As they crossed each station, they received a coloured ribbon symbolizing the following: development (brown), health (red), nutrition (blue) and education (green).
