The Freedom Outreach Program in Denare Beach held their 4th annual Walk for Freedom at the end of May. The Group’s Kandie Lagore says pledges are in and it went well. She says so far they have raised 10,722 dollars and that’s from the three communities of La Ronge, Flin Flon and The Pas and so they want to say a big thank you to the businesses from Flin Flon and Denare Beach who sponsored the event being Alpine Convenience, Co-op, Big Dipper and Arctic Beverages. She says there were 27 walkers, the youngest being 10 years old and so they want to thank all of them.
Lagore also praised those who sponsored the walkers as well as the volunteers. 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.
