The Freedom Outreach Program in Denare Beach held their 5th annual Walk For Freedom at the end of May. The group’s Kandie Lagore says pledges are in and this year they have raised 9343 dollars. She says they’d like to thank the Victoria Inn for donating the prize for a weekend stay and the winner this year of that prize is Clara Yaworsky from The Pas and she raised over 3 thousand dollars.
Lagore had praise for the walkers, those who sponsored them and the Co-op for lunch. The walk is held to raise awareness of those afflicted with drug and alcohol addictions as well as to support their programs based at Denare Beach.
