Canadians must rally together to take a stand against the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and rape. Our first Victor Walk in 2013, was a huge success nationwide, and since then we have been working to keep the momentum high with the community we’ve built up together. A national movement powered by an Orange Wave of Courage, the Victor Walk will see Theo Fleury giving a voice to those who have been affected by trauma throughout their lifetimes. Supported by communities across the country, this Victor Walk is recognized as a national movement and is hoped to change the way Canadians understand the effects of childhood trauma.
Supported by communities across the country, this Victor Walk on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28, 2019, is recognized as a national movement and is hoped to change the way Canadians understand the effects of childhood trauma*.
In 2019, our team will be walking one day in Calgary, AB, on July 28, to bring a very bright spotlight on the horrors of childhood rape. Eight million Canadians have suffered from shame and pain of childhood sexual trauma long enough.
All of the details of the 2019 route will be updated as they are available.
