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.
Thank you to all our volunteers who helped to make this event such a great success!
Thanks to all the donated raffle prizes!!
Thank you to Corny Rempel at Mix 96.7 FM for advertising the walk and inviting me to speak on the Morning Show! Thanks to Michelle Sawatzky and Karen Black at Golden West Radio for your time too! Everyone’s contribution made this event a great success! We will be able to put 150 students back to school this coming September. THAT is worth it all!!!
The Mitchell Elementary School raised $ 3,352.00 towards supporting Liberian Children to school! This is the 6th year in a row that this school has been raising money at their annual “Treats and Treasures” event for Provision of Hope. Thank you to all the teachers at this school who influence their students to reach out to others world wide. You are an exceptional school!! The Treats and Treasures money is not included in the money raised at Walk a Mile in My Shoes.
From the children of Liberia, I say a BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED IN FUNDING US TO SCHOOL!
