Walk a Mile in My Shoes Manitoba was a great success!
Thank you to all South East Manitobans who came out to join us at our 9th annual walk. This is a walk for Education to continue funding our 150 children and youth to school in Liberia, West Africa.
We had more than 70 walkers and raised over $ 12,000 at this event. This included the money that was raised by the Mitchell Elementary Treats and Treasures Annual Fundraiser. This year they raised a grand total of $ 2,897.31!! All this was done through the students bringing in baked goods, toys, books etc and having a Giant Sale for the whole school! Thank you students and teachers for your hard work. More Liberian children will get to go to school because of you!!
Their goal was to put 8 children to school again through the funds raised this year. To everyone’s amazement they exceeded their goal, which means even more children get to go to school! Mitchell Elementary you are teaching your students to have a positive world view and that they really can make a difference in the lives of others anywhere in the world. This is the fifth consecutive year that Mitchell Elementary has raised funds for Provision of Hope’s children in Liberia. We manage the dollars well and oversee the well being of each student that we fund to school. Education is a doorway to hope and a brighter future.
All ages can participate in our one mile walk. The children enjoyed their helium balloons + face painting.
Pirates, Cats, Butterflies and more ………………………………………………………… so much FUN!!
Maria Scheper thanks for all these fabulous photos! Good job!
Every participant received a ticket to enter our raffle prize draws.
Thank God for sunny skies and a great turn out!! I am already looking forward to next year which will be our 10th year doing this!!! All for the sake of Education for Disadvantaged Children.
If you would like to be part of the “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” planning committee, we could sure use your help.
