Vancouver to Toronto – 2012
The Five with D.R.I.V.E Foundation has teamed up with the Canadian Crime Victim Foundation and Police Services in Canada to advocate on behalf of victims of crime. Crime victims have become one of Canada's most vulnerable and marginalized populations - it's time to give them a voice throughout the heartbeat of our country and erode the injustice they face through re-victimization in our Justice System.
The Five with D.R.I.V.E Foundation (5WD) has decided that they will complete their journey across Canada by walking from Vancouver, British Columbia to Toronto, Ontario in 2012.
Freedom Walk is an initiative that seeks common ground to stand on to advocate the plight of those that have suffered from injustice in our society. Our intention is to help redress the unfair imbalance for those across Canada who have been victimized by acts of violent crime by providing educational opportunities equal to that so often afforded their victimizers. Join us in Giving Victims a Voice this year and our efforts to raise money towards The Canadian Crime Victims Scholarship Fund and the CCVF Secondary School Scholarship.
