Walk for a cause: Talitha Koum Society's 'Walk for Freedom 2014'

Funds raised will benefit women struggling with addiction

The walk will take place around the perimeter of the beautiful Burnaby Central Park, pictured here.

The CWL of St. Mary's Parish will join forces with the Talitha Koum Society Sept. 21 to host the "Walk for Freedom", an event which will support the rehabilitation of women fighting substance abuse and violence.

Talitha Koum is an organization that operates spiritual 'safe houses', where women dealing with addiction and the trauma of abuse can get the help they need to do so. Staff at the Talitha Koum houses are often graduates of their program who use their firsthand experience with these issues to offer support to the residents.

The "Walk for Freedom" will be held at Burnaby Central Park's Lohn Perennial Garden from 1-3 p.m. Registration fee is $10, and forms can be obtained by emailing Teresa Lung (Teresa.lung@telus.net) or Sister Denece (dbillesberger@shaw.ca)
