Steinbach Walk raises over $ 15,500 for Education

WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES MANITOBA raised over $ 15,500 at our 10th Annual Walk  last Sunday at AD Penner Park in Steinbach.  All proceeds are going towards education for orphan and needy children in Liberia, West Africa.   For many children in this country, going to school is only a dream.  They simply do not have the funds. Many families hardly have enough food to eat, not to mention school fees.
